Regensburger Dom


Last Friday, when all my German power plant shenanigans had finally come to their merciful end, Ms. Müller and I found ourselves  with a free afternoon in Bavaria.  I’d been told by several people in the area to take the 45 minute drive down to Regensburg if I ever got the opportunity.  Well, the opportunity presented itself, so we made the trip.

Regensburg is quite a pretty little city.  Located right on the Danube, it’s chalk full of incredibly old buildings (like 500 AD, Roman occupation old) and the accompanying narrow streets and alley ways.  It’s most prominent feature, as is the case with most of these old German cities, is its incredibly Gothic cathedral, the Regensburger Dom.  A ridiculously intricate structure, it was pretty neat to stroll around and take its picture.  I’ll show you around the rest of the city real soon…

I’ll shut up and let the pictures talk…

The people in front offer a little perspective…  Massive structure…

Once we ventured inside.

Them are some pipes.

Unbelievably enough, there’s an app for that… How post-modern.

That’s all for today. Come back soon for the rest of the city…

  1. I love gothic Churches and old architecture in general, which is why Europe is so amazing! How old is the Church in your pictures, do you think?

    • I agree… The architecture there is unlinke anything else, and is downright breathtaking… I don’t know much about the place, but according to wikipedia there were several stages of contrusction from about 700-1538… Amazing the number of generations that had to be involved… Thanks for your interest 🙂

  2. Beautiful Photos – thanks for sharing:)
