Regensburg is the best-preserved medieval city in Germany and boasts numerous attractions from the times when Regensburg was a fortress on the border of the Roman Empire and in the Middle Ages a flourishing and wealthy trading place in Central Europe. The city was later the seat of the Permanent Imperial Parliament.
