A long time seat of rulers (as early as the Roman occupation in the 2nd century AD), Regensburg is one of the most well-preserved contemporary German cities. With a cluster of medieval landmarks in its “old city” that are among the few culturally viable areas in the country to escape destruction during World War II, Regensburg is a great day trip to be had a mere hour and a half north of Munich.
Famous landmarks include a number of churches that near a thousand years old (the Regensburg Cathedral, the Church of St. James, and Obermünster Abbey) and the Stone Bridge, a premiere example of medieval bridge building.The vibe here is very reminiscent of Italy, with a collection of open-air cafes and well-maintained, historic buildings around which the city bustles. There may be no better place to relax after a day of hiking in Germany's first national park, the Bavarian Forest, found under an hour's drive to the east.

Note:The city center is the largest preserved collection of buildings in Germany and is a UNESCO-certified site.
