Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at Munich Central Station and board your train to Regensburg. Your journey takes roughly 1.5 hours, and as you travel, your guide will talk to you about Regensburg and its history.
Standing on the Danube River and once a Roman settlement, Regensburg was the first capital of Bavaria, and flourished between the 11th and 13th centuries with trading links that reached as far as Venice and Kiev. Learn how some of the city’s Roman, Romanesque and Gothic architecture still stands, and how in 2006, its medieval center became a UNESCO World Heritage site.
On arrival, set off into Regensburg Old Town (Altstadt) for a guided walking tour of its historical highlights, pretty squares and narrow, cobbled lanes.
As you stroll, listen to your guide share interesting historical insights about the landmarks. See magnificent Regensburg Cathedral (Dom St Peter), the finest Gothic building in Bavaria, and admire its richly carved exterior and stunning medieval stained glass windows.
Walk to the 16-arched Stone Bridge, one of Regensburg’s showpieces, and enjoy the views of the Danube from this 12th-century structure as you learn how it became a model for bridge-building across Europe.
See the Historic Sausage Kitchen (Wurstkuchl) with its outdoor tables and discover how this quaint spot also dates to the 12th century, when workers on the cathedral and bridge feasted on sausages sold here.
After your tour, enjoy up to three hours to explore at your leisure, aided by a free map from your guide. Perhaps have lunch at the Sausage Kitchen (own expense) and stroll the winding streets to see more of Regensburg’s landmarks. Stop by at the city’s other medieval churches, view its Roman relics or visit the Adler Pharmacy to see its original 17th-century interior.
When the time comes, rejoin your guide and travel back to Munich station, where your tour ends.

    Our trip to Regensburg could not have been better. It was a rainy day but our guide, Ernie, a retired University Professor, was unbelievably kind and well-informed. He took us through the history of the city, presented the city as a proud resident would (he actually lives in Regensburg), and made the trip most enjoyable. His professionalism and knowledge were top notch. We highly recommend this tour.

    This was a great day trip from Munich. Lucia was our guide for the English tour, and she was fantastic. She is very knowledgeable about the area, did a great walking tour, and was able to organize our small group during the train ride. Regensburg is a beautiful place to wander the narrow streets of history. Our only recommendation would be to upgrade the tour to first class on the train, even though it costs a bit more. It would just make the guide's job easier.

    Fizemos este tour durante nossa visita em Munique em dezembro, 2017. A cidade é linda, merece ser visitada, aos pés do Rio Danúbio. O nosso guia nos contou sobre cada detalhe desta cidade medieval, foi muito atencioso. O tour foi muito bem planejado. Recomendo este passeio com a Viator.

    Great trip by crowded train with an energetic and knowledgeable guide named Lucia. She gave us a great walking history of the city and pointed out many interesting architectural sites along with explanations. We walked down many narrow byways and over to the river. We were then given time on our own to explore. It was December and we visited three Christmas markets with the biggest and liveliest being the one just down the main street from the large Dom. An interesting city with well-preserved charm as well as modern development.

    My biggest beef with any of the tours by train run by Radius from Munich: why is the travel always by second class? First class seats which are much less crowded cost maybe 5 Euros per person more - well worth the cost since our trip was so crowded that other passengers were standing in the aisles making bathroom access difficult. The ride is about an hour an a half. Five Euros is cheap for an upgrade.

    Nice one day excursion with knowledgeable guide to point out key sites and facts about this ancient, historic town. The train ride was a nice way to get there and back with a relaxing chance to see the country side. Would have liked a couple more hours to walk around and see things at the end on your own time to make it less rushed. Back at the Munich train station, a nice way to end the day is to visit the Augustina beer garden just a few blocks from the train station.

    Repair work on the stone bridge was unlucky. Oldest sausage stand was ok. Guided portion was informative.

    There is a lot of history in this town. The trip is an easy 1 hour train ride from Munich. Our guide Keith has extensive knowledge of the area. Plan on the trip using up most of one whole day, but it is well worth it. If you are expecting a medieval city, you will be surprised by how modernized the whole town is now. Very safe clean city. The walking tour was a full 1.5 hour, so not ideal for small children or people who are limited in mobility.
