Rosenburg Castle was built in the 12th century by the Counts of Riedenburg. It has been rebuilt and extended many times, right up to the present day.

In the Peasants' War , the castle was conquered in April 1525 by rebels and largely destroyed. A reconstruction took place between 1556 and 1560. In the Thirty Years' War the castle 1632-1634 was sacked several times. During the War of Spanish Succession Rosenburg was conquered by the Austrians.

The well maintained property now serves as a castle museum.

Good place for kids and bird show was amazing. Little bit sad by seeing all birds in cages. But castle and place location was amazing. Entry free is about 8 euros and please check show time before going there. There are two show happen in a day, one at 11 and other at 3.30.

Entry costs 8 euros and it was worth it. The presentation of the big birds is impressing and takes about 40 minutes. Beside the birds show, also the museum in the castle has a lot to offer. There is also a Biergarten where a Bier can be drunk and some food eaten.

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.
