Europe 2016. Regensburg

Regensburg is known primarily for it's old stone bridge. The oldest stone bridge over the Danube, built between 1135-1146. There are pockets of antiquity along the Danube and Europe in general that weren't bombed during WWII. Some by design (See Monuments Men) some by accident in that there was no need to.
Timbers still intact from the bridge Gate Tower, which was also a salt storage building. Salt was one of the most coveted items of the era.

Stolen off the internet:

Also has an ancient cathedral.
