1155 DE - Old town of Regensburg with Stadtamhof (2006)

Brief Description
"Located on the Danube River in Bavaria, this medieval town contains many buildings of exceptional quality that testify to its history as a trading centre and to its influence on the region from the 9th century. A notable number of historic structures span some two millennia and include ancient Roman, Romanesque and Gothic buildings. Regensburg’s 11th- to 13th-century architecture – including the market, city hall and cathedral – still defines the character of the town marked by tall buildings, dark and narrow lanes, and strong fortifications. The buildings include medieval patrician houses and towers, a large number of churches and monastic ensembles as well as the 12th-century Old Bridge, which dates from. The town is also remarkable for the vestiges testifing to its rich history as one of the centres of the Holy Roman Empire that turned to Protestantism."

"雷根斯堡旧城位于多瑙河畔,属巴伐利亚州。 这座中世纪城市里有许多杰出的建筑,见证了雷根斯堡作为贸易中心的历史,也见证了这座城市在9世纪时对这一地区所产生的影响。雷根斯堡保存了数量众多的历 史建筑,包括古罗马建筑、罗马式建筑及哥特式建筑,这些建筑跨越了近两千年的岁月。11至13世纪的建筑,包括市场、市政厅和教堂,至今仍是雷根斯堡的特 色,到处是高高耸立的建筑、昏暗狭窄的街道,还有固若金汤的堡垒。这些建筑物中有中世纪贵族的房屋和塔楼、许许多多的教堂和修道院建筑群,还有建于12世 纪的古桥。这座城市的著名之处还在于其许多遗迹都展现了这里浑厚的教育和宗教历史。这里曾是神圣罗马帝国的中心之一,后又转奉新教。"
