  • Worth a brief visit to see the mural on the building wall. It goes back to the 1500's. The building itself goes back to the 1200's. Yes, this really is "old town."

  • One of the many interesting buildings to see in Historic city centre of Regensburg is the Goliathhaus (Goliath House) which was built along Goliathstraße in 1260. What makes this heritage building particular unique and interesting to see is the large scale mural of a fight between David and Goliath, which you will see while approaching from the north from Brückstraße. The mural was created in 1573 and depicts Goliath as the massive giant in armour, reaching upward several floors. His left arm is shown cleverly resting on one of the building windows while he peers downward towards David. By comparison, David is much smaller, bent over, preparing to sling a stone towards Goliath. We know how the story goes after this scene.
  • It'a nice painting on a house ... nothing more than that.
