Was not as overcast as predicted so we thought we would take a train to the historic town of Regensburger, 90 minutes by train outside Munich, Have I mentioned how much I love public transport? But the Germans do it well. On time, clean & fast. Weather good, but cold.
Arrived at the town/city and were wondering what we were in for. Seemed fairly modern and plain. But when you walked down the hill toward the Danube River it all changed. Cobble stone roads and small streets with shops and cafes. Took a tour around the town on a bus with English commentary. Place was al lot bigger than we thought and over 2000 years old. Went for lunch at a historic Wurst  (sausage) café on the river, choice of beer but only one choice of sausage with sauerkraut. But you do get to pick how many sausages you have. They say a café /canteen selling wurst has been on that site for up to 1000 years. Walked across the Old Stone Bridge which is very old, didn't take much to make that name up.  Again over 1000 years old. Must of built it to get to the wurst café.  Casual walk around the city, stopping for coffee and cake, again. Train ride back home .
Dinner at an Italian restaurant around the corner from unit, lot's of restaurant/cafes in Munich, than home. Again playing it by ear for tomorrow so will see what happens.
Bye

I can see that you liked the sausages ;-) The town is called "Regensburg", which could be loosely translated to "castle on the [river] Regen". The people from the town and, incidentally ;-) the very nice sausages originating here, are Regensburger. Please note I'm not equaling people and sausages, they just happen to be called the same. You can generally figure out which meaning is intended through context, such as "boiled" vs. "hungry".
