It was a wonderful experience to find your shop in the middle of the evening of this Christmas holidays. First the location is beautiful, second your selection of items is amazing. I purchased 2 chess sets and 3 Christmas Jim Shore tree ornaments; I just love them all. My wide also found plenty to purchase, from art to jewelry.... too many presents opportunities there!! LOL!! Just to let you know, it was nice to set the 2 chess sets in our showcase shelves; I look forward to come back to Angers to get more!!! The owner is also a very entertaining sales person who knows how to discuss his products and patiently explains all the details we might want to know of. Furthermore, he took the trouble to fill in the tax refill forms for us and to explain its whole process upon returning at the airport. I just have to remember to own a lot of money to get there again, as I could just buy the whole shop!!! LOL!! :-D :-D :-D

Regensburg Sausage Kitchen

The Historic Sausage Kitchen of Regensburg (Wurstküche) is notable as perhaps the oldest continuously open public restaurant in the world. In 1135 a building was erected as the construction office for the Regensburg stone bridge. When the bridge was finished in 1146 AD, the building became a restaurant named Garkueche auf dem Kranchen ("cookshop near the crane") as it was situated near the then river port. Dockers, sailors and the staff of the nearby St. Peter cathedral workshop were the regulars for the centuries to come. The present building at this location dates from the 17th century, but archaeological evidence has confirmed the existence of a previous building from the 12th century with about the same dimensions.

Until ca. AD 1800, the specialty was boiled meat, but when the family who currently own the restaurant took over in 1806, charcoal grilled sausages were introduced as the main dish offered. The kitchen still operates today and serves 6,000 sausages to guests daily.
