Why walk when you can hover? Regensburg visitors can now explore the city’s historical treasures and modern shopping streets using a Segway. The two-wheeled and computer-balanced electronic vehicles are used for guided city tours, taking visitors to the hidden corners and beautiful sights of the Bavarian city on the Danube such as the gothic cathedral, courtyards and private chapels of the medieval houses or princely palace of the Thurn & Taxis dynasty. English-language tours take place on weekends and public holidays (EUR 59 per person).
Regensburg is not only steeped in its medieval history but also a buzzing and modern city with a vibrant student community, contemporary restaurants, bars and stylish hotels to go with. Just opened, the Hotel Central Regensburg features 70 light and spacious rooms in a newly constructed building. The hotel is centrally situated, close to the Old Town, between the park of the Thurn und Taxis palace and the central train station.
Another new accommodation option in Regensburg is a boutique hotel in the best sense of the word – The Hotel L’Ostello is in the heart of the Old Town and features six individually furnished rooms in a listed building. Each room is dedicated to a historic Regensburg personality.
