Regensburg Photos

From: Regensburg, Germany


Danube River

The Steinerne Brücke, or Stone Bridge, glows in the late-afternoon sun.

The bridge was constructed from 1135 to 1146 to eliminate the need for erecting and repairing temporary wooden bridges. It has 15 arches and runs nearly 1/3 kilometer from the Altstadt to Stadtamhof (a district that was a Bavarian border town in the days when Regensburg was a Free Imperial City). At one time, the Steinerne Brücke was an important crossing point along the main trade route between Venice and Northern Europe.
