WEEKEND WRITERS: Regensburg!
We’re headed to Regensburg!
Weekend Writers has survived the winter. We have a bit more daylight, and we’re ready to hit the road…er…trains.
If you haven’t been to a Weekend Writers before, we meet at the train station, hop a train to a new city, write on the way, explore, and write on the way back. These days usually involve a lot of words, walking, food, and laughs.

If you would like to take the mini-train tour of Regensburg while we’re there, please bring an extra €10.

The Bavarian city of Regensburg is located on the Danube in south-eastern Germany and is known for its well-preserved medieval centre. One of its landmarks is the stone bridge from the 12th century. It is 310 m long, has 16 arches and connects the Stadtamhof district with the old town. Another important landmark is the 13th-century Gothic cathedral with its twin towers. This is where the Regensburger Domspatzen are at home. Important German personalities are honored in the Walhalla, a memorial built in the style of the Parthenon east of the city.
