While we were on our AmaWaterways river cruise, at the end of November/early December of 2013, we breezed quickly through Germany but managed to take a few shots that were noteworthy. We were on a Christmas Market cruise and there’s nothing as pretty as Christmastime in Germany. Enjoy my Germany travel photo gallery along the Danube River.
During the time we were on the ship we stopped in Linz (in Austria) and Passau. Both towns were charming but we were there in the evening and my night photography didn’t capture what we saw. However, our daytime stops were in Regensburg and Nurnberg, both known for their charming and romantic Christmas Markets.

We visited the oldest fast food restaurant called Historische Wurstküche. A building was built where the restaurant stands today in 1135 AD as a construction office for the bridge. After the bridge was completed in 1146 AD, the building became a restaurant called Garkueche auf dem Kranchen (cookshop under the bridge) The current building was constructed in the 17th century but there is archaeological evidence that the original building had similar dimensions. In 1806 it became a restaurant for charcoal grilled sausages and still operates today.

Nurnberg (Nuremberg) Germany
The old city of Nurnberg (also spelled Nuremberg) dates back to 1050 AD. It was once referred to as the “unofficial capital” of the Roman Empire. During the 15th and 16th centuries, it became the center of the German Renaissance. The city was extensively damaged during WWII and was the site of the Nuremberg trials. It was rebuilt after the war to the way it was pre-war and some of its medieval buildings were reconstructed. (others were lost forever)
