One hundred twenty five kilometers north of Munich lies the old medieval town of Regensburg, situated at the confluence of three rivers —the Danube, Naab and Regen. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Regensburg is famous for its historic medieval center containing as many as fifteen hundred listed buildings, the largest such collection north of the Alps. Among the most notable sights in town, is a 12th-century-old stone bridge over the Danube, and its contemporary and aptly titled “Historic Sausage Kitchen” that has been serving fine fried sausages to patrons for nearly 900 years. It is perhaps the oldest continuously open public restaurant in the world.
