  • Fantastic basilica with the same organ. Bright and friendly with lots of gold and rich picture jewelry.

  • The basilica is in a beautiful state of preservation. Both the baroque central section and the side wings with even much older stonemasonry and altars are worth seeing. If you already stay in the Thurn & Taxis Palais next door, you can spend a few minutes there.

  • You will need to walk around and check for open doors to find this place. Also know google tries to take you to the wrong door to access the Abby. It is absolutely beautiful and was also empty when my wife and I toured. Make the effort and open some doors and you might just find this.
  • It was the last abbey „Kloster” I have visited on my short stay in Regensburg. Although it being among the oldest, but the bright light inside and the amazing paintings gave it a very sweet and amazing presence. It should be on your agenda if you like to visit historical religious places. I have liked it a lot
