Eastern Bavaria, Germany

Runtingerhaus, Regensburg, Germany (cc)

Eastern Bavaria

Eastern Bavaria forms part of the Bavarian heartland and contains some of the oldest parts of Bavaria. For foreign visitors, the two Danube cities of Regensburg and Passau are of most interest. Both cities escaped World War II virtually undamaged. Regensburg has a lovely medieval town center, while Passau is mostly Baroque. Both cities are popular with European travelers, but English-speakers still seem to pass them by. This is unfortunate, as both are intriguing and easy to reach from Franken, both by rail and by car.
