The history of Regensburg (Regensburg vacation rentals | Regensburg travel guide) dates from the middle ages and remnants of the city's walls and former architecture are still visible. Being so far south and not having any strategic targets, Regensburg is one of the few German cities to avoid bombing during WWII. However time has taken its toll on the older structures and in the 50s many buildings were —pulled down— to avoid having them collapse on their own. This was certainly a sad time in Regensburg's history. A period of restoration followed and many structures in Regensburg were rebuilt using the original materials. Pieces were saved from those that couldn't be rebuilt and incorporated into the new building built on the site.
