Day 10
When we made our itinerary, we had trouble getting good train connections to Prague: from Salzburg or Munich they were 6 hours or more and/or involved changing trains. As a result, we had the idea to chop up the Munich-Prague route with an overnight stop in between. After looking at various options, we chose Regensburg. It made for the overall shortest time on trains and also had a city center that was a UNESCO site.

The day we left Munich was our hottest day yet, with excessive heat warnings in the forecast. The train was not air conditioned, but at least we had air moving with the windows down. The ride was about an hour and a half, so we dropped our bags off at the hotel and set off in search of lunch and maybe an optician: DD1’s glasses unexpectedly broke as they were sitting on her face the night before. Big thanks to the guy at Fielman & Hörakustiker Optical who fixed them for free! We also found a fun manga/anime shop on the same street as our hotel.

After some down time in the AC, we ventured out again to walk around some more in the medieval town center.

We also checked out the pedestrian bridge over the Danube.

There is a restaurant in Regensburg that is perhaps the oldest continuously operating public restaurant in the world. I was interested in going but was outvoted because there was a lot of sauerkraut on the menu! After dinner elsewhere and ice cream, we called it an evening. We went to sleep comfortably, only for everyone to wake up to a very stuffy room in the middle of the night… but that’s a story for the hotel review!
