Regensburg’s Donaumarkt is, as I have written before, one of my weekend joys. Due to construction at its usual spot down on the riverbank, it has had to move Alter Kornmarkt — at least temporarily. Will it end up there permanently? How long into the autumn season will it continue to run?
We took a stroll this morning to the Donaumarkt’s new home on Alter Kornmarkt, in the shadow of the Dom Sankt Peter. It seemed just as happily chaotic as ever, with all kinds of people doing their weekly shopping or sampling new stuff. We think we like the new layout of the market even better than the old one: the old one had more or less just two major lanes for, and the foot traffic often congested. The new layout reminds us more of a spiral walkway, with inner and outer lanes, and that seems a little denser but nevertheless more efficient.
