On tour with Anne

As part of the annual conference of the Federal Association of German Incoming Companies (BVDIU) on 29 and 30 January 2024, Anne had the opportunity to take part in a pre-tour to the Regensburg region, meet other members and expand her network. In addition to getting to know tourist highlights, the programme also included traditional German cuisine, which of course - and in Bavaria this is absolutely essential! - also included brewing.

Of innkeepers and castle lords

The bus stopped on Sunday morning in Eilsbrunn, the first stop on the tour. This is home to the oldest pub in the world, which has been run by the same family from generation to generation since 1678 and also holds the Guinness World Record: Gasthaus Röhrl, a rustic location that would surely appeal to our customers just as much!

The next stop took us to Prunn Castle, a knight's castle with a unique view of the beautiful Altmühltal valley south-west of Regensburg. Nearby, we already offer hikes along the Altmühltal Panorama Trail.

The art of brewing and building

After a break in Germany's first wheat beer brewery, located in Kehlheim, we were able to take a look at the Danube Gorge before visiting the Liberation Hall: a memorial built for the victorious battles in the war of liberation against Napoleon. Impressive!

Last but not least, we travelled to Abensberg to the Kuchlbauer brewery, which had another surprise in store: Not only did we get to experience an exciting guided tour of the brewery, we were also enthralled by a Hundertwasser art centre with a wonderful exhibition and a tower specially created by Hundertwasser. A real insider tip!

Discovery tour through the world heritage city

The historic centre of Regensburg is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During an exciting city tour, we learned all about this old trading metropolis and the former political centre of the Holy Roman Empire.

In addition to the famous Regensburg Cathedral and the Imperial Diet Museum, you will also find the oldest coffee house in Germany and a long-established master hat maker who has been working with Disney for many years and outfitting Hollywood films...

A special kind of memorial

The next stop took us to Donaustauf to the Walhalla, a hall of fame built by King Ludwig I in the antique style and featuring busts of various personalities.

There it stands, high above the Danube, greeting its guests - amazing, a hall of fame that looks like the Acropolis but has a Nordic title. What a great surprise for us!

Annes conclusion

In short: whether on foot, by bike or in a group on a bus - the area around Regensburg is an exciting alternative for travellers in Bavaria and rounds off a visit to Munich or Nuremberg. Here there are cultural highlights "off the beaten track" for both our incoming and active travellers, with which we can surprise our guests with new excursion destinations and tips.
