Return to Regensburg – Bürgerfest 2023

I spent my academic junior year of 1978-79 abroad at the University of Regensburg in what was then West Germany. I returned to Regensburg 45 years later to see some old friends and enjoy the city’s annual “Bürgerfest.”

In 179 A.D., the Romans built a fort, “Castra Regina,” on the north bank of the Danube River near its confluence with the Regen River, in what is now Regensburg’s “Altstadt.” So Regensburg celebrated its 1,800th anniversary as a city during the year I was studying there. That same year, my hometown of Nashville celebrated its 200th birthday.
