Regensburg Christmas Markets
leaflet (in German) - see map on page 10
The markets are at the locations a) to d). The Hauptbahnhof (main train station) is just outside the old city. At the very bottom of the shown map you see the railway line and the logo HBF.
The recommended ticket for this trip is a Bayern Ticket. EUR 29 for 2-5 persons travelling together. Covers all regional trains in Bavaria. And also all other local public transport in Munich and Regensburg. With this ticket you could thus also use the city buses in Regensburg. Map
Thank you for such a quick reply. The German Christmas markets have been one of the things I have wanted to do for such a long time and now that I am doing it I want to be as organized as possible. Thanks again.
The largest and most unique market was that at the Thurn und Taxis Palace. As you exit the train station, you will be facing a park. Walk two short blocks through the park and turn left. The entrance to the Romantic Christmas Market will be a few blocks on your left. Our pictures from last December:
The town itself has market stalls in various locations. Regensburg is fun to explore and easily doable on foot unless it is slippery as it was for our most recent visit. Pictures again:
It was one of our favorite stops, weather or not. Hope that you enjoy yourself as much as we did.
Thanks for the info. Your pictures are great
It's a couple of hours drive via the A43 (direction Ulm), A6 (past Nuremburg) and A3 (direction Regensburg)autobahns. It's a straight forward drive, although traffic can be very busy around Nuremburg and if it's snowing speeds are obviously slower.
By train you can do the journey in 2 & a half to 3 and a half hours, with 2 to 3 changes of train, depending on route and time of departure. bahn.de .
