Regensburg

Regensburg is one of the towns that was spared during WWII and received very little damage, with its medieval town nearly intact. It became a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of the city’s status as a cultural center of the Middle Ages.   It was a city of many churches and people who fluctuated between the Catholic and Protestant faith with many churches to reflect that.  It was a bit of a tough day for our two and a half hour walking tour because it was 92 degrees today!! Whew!!
