Great place.

Try to visit when they have the historic play on.

A nice enough distraction for a couple of hours. The stairs to the top of the castle are narrow and a bit claustrophobic. The view from the top is decent.

Always a pleasure to visit here, be sure to check out the monastery ruins (several) nearby as well.

A nice old ruin with a few small exhibitions. Nice view from up top. Great for a visit with children who will let their imagination roam free. You will have seen it all in about an hour.

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.
