The historic Bratwurst kitchen of Regensburg

Nuernberger Bratwurst

The medieval town of Regensburg is mainly famous for its stone bridge over the Danube, built between 1135 and 1146. It's still going strong and is used by traffic to this day. To complete the construction of this bridge, Roman workers counted on Bavarian sausages to keep them going.

Today in Regensburg, a 900 year-old building lies next to the stone bridge, which hosts the historic sausage kitchen and sells around 6000 sausages a day. The recent owners of the restaurant purchased it in 1806 from the Regensburg State authority. They also claim that documentary evidence exists to link the establishment back to the time when the bridge was built.

Visitors should be prepared to like sausages - as that's all there is on the menu! They're accompanied by sauerkraut, home-made mustard and local beer, and come in portions of six, eight or ten they are each about 30 gr and 5cm long. The recipe used for sausages you are eating today from the oldest kitchen in the world situated in Regensburg on the Danube.
