Regensburg (2014)
Chistmas Markets
December 2014
Regensburg's ancient stone bridge is undergoing construction
Fortunately, we have been here before and were able to see it clearly. Those photos are HERE

The medieval tower at left serves no purpose.
Families built these towers to show how rich they were

In modern times it found a purpose as a cell tower

The exterior of the Cathedral is constantly being cleaned.
Pope Benedict visited here since his brother was organist for decades
The poster at right shows a perfectly clean building

Christmas Market in the shadow of the Cathedral
Where you can buy local food and glueh wine in souvenir mugs
There is a separate Christmas Market at the Von Taxis Palace
Here we were introduced to Geocaching by cruisemates
Clues are left online to "treasures" stashed all over the world
