Description

An aerial view of Regensburg's Alter Kornmarkt, located behind Regensburg Cathedral. In the center of the court is a quatrefoil fountain surrounded by greenery. People mill about. The prominent building on the right is known as the Römerturm. It is a square stone tower with a gabled roof and dormer windows. The first story consists of rusticated stones. The two towers of the cathedral rise above the marketplace.
