Our trip to Regensburg was delayed by three hours last night due to a lock whose door wouldn’t close behind us. So, we had a pleasant morning and lunch on the ship. Irene, our local guide, took us around town. One tower was of interest to us. It was very tall with only a winding staircase inside. Why? To show off wealth. Vanity! After a beer and pretzel we decided to see the new museum in town which had just opened on June 5th. It presented the last two-hundred years of Bavarian history.
So, yes, it had a small Nazi section. That was expected…but the Beatles? Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! They had a small section too.
The lion is the icon of the museum and we’re told it moves sometimes. It didn’t for us. Sometimes it just goes that way.
The Germans love to party and there is one big celeration every month. August, Ellen’s birth month, features a dragon. That’s why there’s a big head of one pictured.
There were interactive tables one could play on. The curator must figure that it’s easier to learn something through play.
We headed for the ship where we were entertained by the Shanty Choir Regensburg. They specialize in sea and river songs.
