Magdeburg calls itself the “Otto City”. During a visit to the Ottonianum Cathedral Museum in Magdeburg, you can search for traces of one of the two “Ottos” who had so much influence on the development of the city.
Regensburg’s old town is characterised by many narrow and often winding alleys. We strolled through the streets and discovered some interesting things.
Four rivers meet in Regensburg: Naab, Regen, Danube and, although not a “real” river, the Main-Donal Canal. We took a look around Regensburg on the banks of the Danube and also took a boat trip on the famous Danube “Strudel”.
One of the most impressive buildings in Regensburg is the Old Town Hall on Rathausplatz. Here you can go on a journey of discovery with a guided tour and learn about the history of Regensburg’s imperial days.
I had the Visitor Mine F60 on my destinations-wishlist for a little while. Now we finally got to go on an excursion to the brown coal opencast mining area in Lusatia.
Some destinations leave you with more to think about than others. Our excursion to the Holocaust Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen was one of the most moving tours I have experienced in the recent past.
