A piece of Roman history that transports you back in time. The signage is in English and German. About a 5 minute stop.

These very visible remains of Roman Empire occupation graphically emphasize both the age and strategic importance of Regensburg. This was an early stop on our guided walking tour of the old town area and well worth it from a historical perspective.

Interesting piece of Regensburg history skillfully integrated into the city architecture. There is a Sign (in German) that explains the history and dates of use.

This is the remains of a gate, which was part of a Roman fort built around 2000 years ago. This is the only Roman gate left, which is located in the North of the Alps.

I have stayed here a couple of times. My favorite place to overnight in Regensburg, but it's almost impossible to get without reservations. This is one of those "you only live once" type of places. It's a bit pricier than most rooms in the area,...More
