    This is a residential tower that was built by rich residents of the city in the Middle Ages. Very impressive!

    The Tower of the Genoese is a construction that originated in Tuscany in the early Middle Ages and was used by influential urban families for residential and defense purposes. At the end of the 13th century, the construction north of the Alps was copied in the commercial city of Regensburg, which had become wealthy due to trade with Italy, where the towers did not serve residential and defense purposes but had a representative character and served to present wealth and influence.

    One of 20 residential towers of the patrician families. Up to 50m high, but not higher than the cathedral!

    Nice tower in the old town. There is now a steam noodle bakery with coffee here. Delicious.
