EUROPEAN SOJOURN: Running of the Bikes (Day 9)

Regensburg, Germany. This is St. Emmeram’s Abbey, a Benedictine monastery founded about 739, with braided vineyards and reflections. It is now a residence and its modern name is Schloss Thurn and Taxis but I like St. Emmeram’s Abbey better.

Old Stone Bridge, built in the 12th century. Everything interesting is old here. The “New Gate” in Nuremberg was built in 1377. One bridge is so old no one know when it was built, but it was rebuilt in the 1100s.

We don’t even bother to walk across the street to see anything from the 17- or 1800s.

Directly across the Danube from the Abbey are these empty bicycle locks. I suspect all the bicycles have gone to join Amsterdam’s 18 million bikes in the daily running down of tourists.                                                                                                                                                                                 418
