  • Within the framework of our class meeting in Regensburg we made with a tour in the old town hall. First, we were able to follow 6 weddings on Saturday, were conducted in the venerable City Hall. A married couple was welcomed as a surprise even with a famous brass band. A tingling feeling for us, so many happy couples to experience and see. The guided tour through the old town hall with the elector room, room of the National Assembly and the terrifying and original torture chamber lies one ever leave the spit in the neck. Seriously, you wondered what there probably happened in the middle ages. I'm glad that we live in the now, because these torture methods were really cruel. With joy, but also with some trepidation we then went out of the Town Hall. A truly unique experience in the Roman city of Regensburg.
