“6 on cabbage … do you actually spell that with an ‘x’ or like the number ‘sechs’ in German?!” – “Well, as far as I know, you do write it with an ‘x’ … six sausages on cabbage, there you go!” both my city guides Isabell Käser & Erwin Maurer reply to me with a sly grin. They are certainly the best & happiest Regensburger that you could wish for as a visitor (do keep an eye out for them!). Together, we have taken a seat at the Historc Wurstkuchl (sausage tavern) of the city of Regensburg an der Donau and order WURST (what else). As everybody, local and visitors alike, would have done for the past one thousand years (yes, it is that historic!). “6 on cabbage” of course means nothing else than ordering six Bratwurst sausages with cabbage for lunch. After all, what else did you think? 😀
Oh dear readers, it is wonderful here in Regensburg … people are so funny, there are so many stories here and being the Austrian I am, I am actually finding the same mentality as back home: Welcoming & easy-going. After only three hours of arriving by train, I have already made up my mind about paying this interesting, historic town and its great people another visit. Regensburg for a day … What you should not miss:
Eat. Sleep. Celebrate. “Fürstliches Brauhaus”, Hotel Münchner Hof & The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain at the city’s Thurn & Taxis Summer Festival …
Having not even spent 24 hours in the charming town by the Danube river, I have actually seen and experienced a lot. A trip to the World Heritage City Regensburg is especially worthwhile now in the summertime, spoiling us to its long daylight hours, warm evenings & radiant people in the streets (“finally, summer is here!”). Where you can find chocolate kisses, a royal sense of past as well as beautiful meals, wine & beer is what I will tell you now: Check it out!
