The boat is docked at Regensburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city has been continuously occupied for over 2000 years. A large Roman settlement was built in 179 AD by Marcus Aurelius. We walk through the city, seeing remains of Roman walls and buildings from the 1300s the 1500s and the 1700s. The city was not bombed during WWII.

Part of the old Roman wall.

There are archeological sites throughout the city as Roman ruins continue to be uncovered.

The City Hall has sections built during different eras.

The church has two very tall spires. It was built over a 300 year period and reflects the different architects over the years.

The Old Stone Bridge was built over 11 years over 300 years ago, considered to be a short time to build a bridge.

After dinner, a dance group from town, eight adults and eight children, do German folk dances.
