Guided tours only in this palace but well worth a visit. Interesting insight into the birth of the postal service.

If you're in Regensburg during christmas market time, you must visit this Palace. It's the only market with an entrance fee and their Glühwein is the most expensive in town but it's such a beautiful place. One of its kind in the world.

If you can avoid going here on the weekend you'll be a lot happier. The Christmas market is extremely popular and the only market where you pay a fee to go inside. It is a beautiful but crowded setting.
