Today is walking tour in a 2000 year old city located at the confluence of the Danube and Regen rivers,followed by a tour of the Thurn and Taxis castle. The princely house of Thurn and Taxis is a German family that was the key player back in the 16th century in establishing what today is the European postal system. Today the Thurn and Taxis family are known for their breweries and castles throughout Europe.
But the best was the shopping for German beer garden costumes and the cafes serving the small sausages that were sold here at the waterfront…and on a cool damp day the sausage and beer was excellent!
