Hotels, rooms, and apartments

Regensburg has several dozen hotels, mostly in or within walking distance of the Altstadt or Old Town. Private rooms (Privatzimmer) and vacation apartments (Ferienwohnung) are also available.

If you arrive in Regensburg without a reservation, visit the Tourist-Information Office on Rathausplatz. The staff will give you a free Accommodation in Regensburg brochure or help you find a room.

You might also want to visit the Web sites of these hotels, which we've listed by price category (with expensive hotels first):

Parkhotel Maximilian, Maximilianstraβe 28, a palatial 19th Century building facing the gardens between the railroad station and the Altstadt.

Bischofshof Hotel am Dom, Krautermarkt 3, in the former bishop's palace of Regensburg.

SORAT Insel-Hotel Regensburg, Müllerstraβe 7, on an island in the Danube that overlooks the Stone Bridge and the Old Town.

Hotel Münchner Hof, Tändlergasse 9, on a narrow medieval street just around the corner from the Neupfarrplatz (where Regensburg's largest Christmas Market takes place). I stayed here; the hotel was comfortable, with a pleasant lounge and an outstanding buffet breakfast. See our hotel review.

Hotel Kaiserhof am Dom, Kramgasse 10-12, opposite the Cathedral.

Altstadthotel Arch, Haidplatz 4, a traditional family-owned hotel.

Hotel Orphée, Untere Bachgasse 8, an intimate 15-room hotel near the tourist office with good press reviews.

Hotel am Peterstor, Fröhliche Türkenstrasse 12, an inexpensive hotel near the Parkhotel Maximilian.

Gaststätte Spitalgarten, St-Katherinenplatz 1, where you'll find nine rooms at a hospital's restaurant and beer garden. (WC and shower are down the hall.)

  • Tip: When comparing hotels, check to see if breakfast is included in the rates. (By law, taxes and service are always included.)

Youth hostel

JH Regensburg, Wöhrdstraβe 60, is on an island in the Danube. The hostel has 186 beds in 44 rooms, with accommodations ranging from small dormitories to singles, doubles, triples, and quads with private showers and WCs. (Note: In Bavaria, hostels give priority to young people under the age of 27. Older guests pay a surcharge and can't book ahead unless they're group leaders or are traveling with at least minor.)

Camping

AZUR Camping Regensburg/Donau is a family-friendly campground 2 km (1¼ miles) from the city center on the banks of the Danube. A bicycle path  leads to the Altstadt, and the Westbad water park with wave pool, thermal mineral-water baths, etc. is close by.
