Regensburg - 2,000 years of history with a future

Regensburg, the world heritage site: In July 2006, UNESCO declared Regensburg's ancient city centre and its Stadtamhof district a world heritage site. In the high middle ages, Regensburg was an important political centre of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, and a prospering European trade hub. Regensburg's historic city centre is regarded as an extraordinary example of a well-preserved big medieval city. The patrician houses and dynasty towers, the cathedral and the old 12th century stone bridge are architectural highlights. And everything is close by - the historic city centre only covers an area of one and a half square kilometres. Today, a booming economy and over 20,000 students make sure that the UNESCO world heritage site is "young and old at the same time".
