From what we’ve seen in local media, tomorrow is the official opening of “our” half of the bridge. Since about a week now, pedestrians on weekends have taken to simply moving the barricades aside and walking about where they please on areas of the bridge that are obviously complete.
A new “café” opened up in the spot where the Chinese Pizza Take-Away Whose Food Smelled Faintly of Litter Box used to be — this renovation has also been several months in the making. We were worried that it would turn into Yet Another Italian Restaurant (just what Regensburg needs…), but for better or for worse, it appears to be an extension of the Spitalgarten (just around the corner on the river bank). Let’s hope the service atmosphere exceeds that of its parent organization.
Still looks pretty nice from Alte Linde!
