Show sight on map

Goliath House is an impressive, battled, early Gothic castle built in 1220/30 in the Old City of Regensburg. The house is located in the north-south direction between Goliathstraße in the north and Watmarkt in the south. The north facade, the facade of the famous Goliath House, displays a painting of the battle between David and Goliath, which has been updated several times since 1573, and is the last version of painter Franz Linner in 1900. The front facade of Goliath House is the south facade facing Watmarkt, which is missing one floor due to the rising terrain. Therefore, the old house letters always refer to the building as "Haus am Watmarkt". The west tower occupies the depth of the whole building complex. To the east of the tower is the residential building of Goliath House, which remained until the end of the 18th century. It forms a building unit with the neighboring Steuerschen Haus. Both castles were built by the aristocratic family of Regensburg on the basis of the northern Roman walls of the Castella Regina Legion camp. Goliath House provides an impressive north side for all visitors crossing the stone bridge, with Goliath paintings on it, and takes advantage of the bridge road that rises slightly inward to reach the city center.

3. Emmeramer Tor

Show sight on map

The New Emmeramer Gate is one of the five preserved city gates of the medieval city fortifications of Regensburg, built around 1320. The well-preserved New Emmeramer Gate replaced the Old Emmeram Gate of the Arnulfine city wall, built around 920, which was located at the southern end of the Upper Bachgasse further northeast at the rounding of the city wall between Obermünster and Sankt Emmeram Abbey. Until 1907, when the neighbouring Helenentor was built and Helenenstraße was laid out, the Emmeramer Tor was an important gateway for the population of Regensburg to the neighbouring farming village of Kumpfmühl to the south, where vegetables were grown and flour was produced. Without this gateway, the village of Kumpfmühl would only have been accessible to the townspeople in a roundabout way, e.g. via the Jakobstor. In the 18th century, the gate offered easy access to the then newly created parks of Fürst-Anselm-Allee.
