Regensburg, a Bavarian city on the Danube River in southeast Germany, is known for its well-preserved medieval core. The 12th-century Stone Bridge, a 310m-long icon with 16 arches, crosses the river to the old town (too bad because of construction I couldn’t get a good photo – try for it online). The 13th-century Regensburg Cathedral, a twin-spired Gothic landmark, is home to the Regensburger Domspatzen choir. 

The Regensburg Cathedral, dedicated to St Peter (Dom St. Peter), is the most important church and landmark of the city of Regensburg. The church is the prime example of Gothic architecture in Bavaria. It is noted for one of the few “Smiling Angeles” in any Cathedral.

In the 15th century, Franz von Taxis assured his place in history by setting up the first European postal system – and probably had a taxi service named after him also.
