DEGGINGER, the Cultural Bar...at Wahlenstrasse 17Werner is a young Regensburger, "I studied Architecture and I apply that here on a monthly basis." he says, when I interview him today at the Funky totally Promotive Cultural Interactive Center in Regensburg. "Another architect built the bar yet I change it every month. And here it is challenging since we always have something going on. For instance we have a night of dancing named Swinging Coffee with the Andi's Bluesorchester, and we have live music on stage, and we have the mayor talking about important issues, that the community can come and join in on, and we have poetry readings and book readings. We even have a house jazz band, and we had a dance for Human Rights."
Outside the haunting streets of Regensburg...
Leerer-beutel and the Jazz Club is hidden down a cobblestoned alley and just the atmosphere lends itself to mystique and expectancy. A lovely jewel that, can I say?, is my favorite romantic place to dine in Regensburg. Bertoldstraße 9/ 49 941 58997.
You can catch a small duo on Thursday the 19th of January to see Scratching the Silence with Dieter Kohnlein and Uwe Kropinski http://www.jazzclub-regensburg.de/home.html
“Here in Bavaria it is Unique I believe it is maybe the only Bavarian Bar and all of Germany where 4 individual breweries share taps with each other. It could be unique in all of Europe. Bavaria is known for the beer that owns the buildings. If you have a bar it usually belongs to a brewery and you must use that beer. We came up with the concept after the couple of years with the Craft Beer Festival that we organized and produced the last 3 years. We approached a couple of breweries that we ourselves respect and they said yes we would love to do it.” Says Martin. Let’s just say that the first thing you will notice about Martin is that he is a Type A personality. And he says, “Yes because I am a venture capitalist trader. Trading is very fast paced and it is stressful. That is where I make my foundation of money and beer has always been my hobby. Trust me if it is one thing you need to learn about German men is that they take their hobbies very seriously.” I start laughing at that. I am learning much about the German man! And woman. The women are cool because as we talk Martin’s wife starts taking the dolley and carrying tons of beer. I do that. I am a little person that usually does all the work myself and I smile when I think of the girls behind the Craft Beer Bars in America with their fluffy hair and nails and perfectly prepared makeup on being asked to bring kegs in from the distributor. WOULD THAT HAPPEN.
Germans? Different. Carolyn is a accomplished educator of handicapped children and looks very feminine, yet here she is carrying 4 stacks of beer cases in! last night as the Belgium distributor came in late!
“Here is the
showroom. It is a retail store. Yes it is fun since it is about beer. Yet you
will never make tons of money in retail beer stores. The bars and restaurants
are different of course. Yet when you ask me about the beer bar I say we have
to wait and see. It is very young. Only 3 weeks old. And yes a lot of people
come to see it because it is new and different. It is a gorgeously designed
bar. Outrageously expensive. Did I lose sleep when it is being designed? Let’s
just say I sleep well now. And it does have 18 beers on tap. That is unique
too. The people love to come in and feel comfortable in the cellar bar! They
love beer and at the bar they are surrounded by beer. Ask me in 6 months if it
is going to do well.”
I say that Rome has a concept bar such as his with about 50 beers on tap, all Craft Beers and just as many bar stools and you can never get a seat. “The concept is cool because you can come in a drink beer on tap and have about 5 different beers and settle for the favorites when you drink number 6 or 7.” Martin says, seriously. I start hesitating. Um…6 or 7? Okay that is definitely a Bavarian Beer thing to. In America you go to the sports bar on Monday night for Football and have a couple of pitchers of Miller or Bud with a table of 5 friends. Maybe the guys have 4 beers tops. The girls one or two. Yet here in Bavaria it is like give me another 6th beer! Ae here is strong!
“The reason I do think the bar will do great is the people. The team is great. The bartenders are wonderful and they either know tons about the beers or are very enthusiastic to learn. That is most important. And our team of breweries are the best. They’re the nicest people and they really like us which, honestly, is the most important. We have Eichhofener, Riedenburger, Nittenauer, and Spital which is the Regensburg brewery. You met Katherine Riedenburger?” Martin asks. And I say yes that I had gone in and had a chat with Katherine. Who I loved. She told me that the pizza and the bread at the Bar is made with, of course, Beer! The entire place is bottle caps and beer! Have to see it.And I wouldn't really say that we have competition in Regensburg. We're the only craft beer store and the closest is Nuremberg with the Die Bierothek's. Yet their's aren't cozy or comfortable feeling inside. They're like rigid and franchising and they don't have a special feeling to the stores. Here people come because they can feel special and comfortable." he says. "The bar is amazing. Wait til you see it, it is really gorgeous." And of course I run to see the bar.
Below is Stefan holding one of the prized Czech bongs! "Czech Republic makes these amazing bongs and the Americans make amazing pipes. One pipe is incredible and costs 1,000.00 euros that the Californian import guy brings in. I buy it! You know the movie stars can just slap down 1,000.00 euros no problem. The students have a little more difficult time! However we have 80 year old people that come in and we have students. I am sure at the exquisite handiwork of the Californian pipe that someone will snatch it up" says Stefan. If by the way you meet Stefan you will fall in love with his laughter. He is one of the happiest people I have ever met. Hmm...maybe it is because he owns a Hempy store!

Inside the little stone kitchen is plaques where the water has risen over the years in addition to some of the cool pictures..."That one is my grandmother's mother," says Andreas as he shows me around the little seating area. "And o that is Heidi from the famous German Artist Regine Herzog," as I notice the funny sculpture that greets you as you walk into the main restaurant which is decorated entirely in white and fawn with a cool white bench hosting 3 baskets, The other is a friend that I found online and he is an artist from Bavaria. He paints satirical religious art and a bohemian art style. They poke fun at the catholic church...not that priests aren´t human it is just hypocritical the portraits. I try to show the world who I am and I don´t like to cover myself generally as a rule." When you meet him it is true that he has a great outlook on the world and a wonderful sense of humor. Lovely to meet. Stay and try the sausages of real regensburg. I am totally fat now. AT THUNDORFERSTRASSE 3...love love love the sausages
I walked into the Cowboy Bar named DUDES and met Markus, "It's a Sports and Industrial and Cowboy Bar and you just happened to walk into the Bar on the night that I am playing RedNeck Cowboy Songs." says the owner, Markus of DUDES, the new bar in Regensburg. Why name it DUDES if not for the DUDE Ranches in America? "They have DUDE RANCHES in America? I lived one year in America and I didn't see any Dude Ranches, but the reason we named it DUDE's is actually a funny story. We were going to name it Shine for Moonshine but we choose DUDES," he says.

I love bicycles, I´ve always loved bicycles, especially when Albert rides bicycles- and I love the people that own these cool physical stores. They´re alway´s happy. They´re surrounded every day with totally cool and the latest tech fashion and colors of the coolest bikes. And the store of Feine-raeder is a totally exceptional beautifully designed store. "It has been 22 years and I love my life. I love the bikes and I love the people that come here and try the bike and take it around the city and they come back and say thankyou very much for helping me with my bike. It is my love and my life." says the real physical owner of Feine-Raeder, Claus. Yes Santa Claus!

The coolest thing about the electric mom mobile as I tend to name it is that you can carry your children and do super mercato shopping without too much effort. It ranges from about 5,700.euros and although I asked if it could come in my favorite color pink, the owner said he has green, blue, white and black. Alright you can always custom order!
"And we have 24 hr. repair, too, which is important for everybody yet especially the students. You know everyone of these students could afford my bikes. Do you know how much they spend on Beer?!" he says. And that is true...a good backpack at the store is saw 49.00 euors ot 139.00 euros. The bike is 799.00 and last 6 to 10 years." the owner says. I say that if they drink Radlers instead of beer they can spend 1/2 that amount to the bikes!
Above the cool owner Claus:)
"The students can come in here and if they spend 6 months or 3 years at Regensburg they can bike the 15 kilometer city every day. A bike if perfect for the city. Me? I ride my electric bike about 22 kilometers everyday back and forth to work. Yet the students love to do the fitness test. They come in and spend between 799.00 for a real good bike to 3,799.00 for the best bike. And of course I don´t have any problem if they come in and spend 10,000.00 euros on the 5 kilo. carbon bike either...that is alright with me!" he jokes.
"The electric bikes is a odd perception. People think it is a motor scooter and you can just sit there, but you have to pedal it. Of course the little battery does all the work, but it helps to power and support the bike when you pedal." Now that is a new info for me!
Feine-Rader´s owner is Claus as in Santa Claus and is pictured above riding the mountain bike. You couldn´t meet a more genuine and nice person seriously. And he LOVES biking. "I love the biking world and I use my Sundays and Mondays to have fun. My fun is biking!" he laughs all the time and loves his guests. The store is a architectural wonder! "Yes we had a architect design it. The cool thing is that I almost 100% carry German Bikes. From the Specialized to the Stevens to the Reise-Muller they´re the best and when I need help from Hamburg they can help me that day. If I order parts from America it takes forever" he says.
Join the Friendly fun loving 20 years Veteran! Thomas of Oma Plusch at his new Beer Garden on the Danube...right at the foot appropriately of the famous LOVE LOCK BRIDGE in Regensburg...The team is CRAZY FUN, the BEER is BISCHOFSHOFs and the MUSIC IS LIVE on the RIVER... I as I say many times and most fond of the Oma Plusch team especially Oma who we now tease that is his name. "You know a funny story is that the other day I received a letter addressed to me saying Dear Mr. Omar Plusch." Did you think of me? I ask. He laughs. "Some people do think that is my name. Once upon a time there was 3 young kids and 40 years since they formed Oma Plusch and that is one of the names perhaps. I am kidding. It is a story." he says. As you can see he has gotten his hair cut. "It is 22 and 1/2 years now since I owned the Oma Plusch. Here the beer garden is my first and in the summer absolutely wonderful. Amazing. My first ever. The only thing is that the older people have a difficult time in the winter crossing the bridge. In the summer they come to do 3 things, drink beer, eat bavarian food and blah blah blah." he says.
"My name is Moritz and I´ve worked with Oma Plusch, Tomas, since about 4 years as a drinking visitor and 1 year as a team member,"says Moritz...he is the tall one with the glasses above:)..."he is the nicest person ever." he says. i say that yes he is since the first person ever to help an independant writer(me) when I came to Regensburg is Mr. Tomas. The nicest person ever. "The beer is different since now after 20 years we have a new beer. It´s name is Bischofshofs and Weltenburger. That is the main difference and now we have a big Beer garden that holds 300 people, we are introducing big outdoor screens that will showcase the European Soccer Championships and live Bavarian Music." he says. Anything else? "Yes a couple of new items on the menus since Max, the youngest chef in Regensburg at the age of 21 has added some tasty items. The one that is the favorite for us is his big Pork...we love it. " Robert, who has been here one month, "That is my favorite too...it is salty and a huge block of pork." Is it that real big pig? I ask. "No but I have cooked that whole pig for 20 people or more. As a matter of fact, when the groups eat it they´re real drunk and they attack the pig and tear it apart." says the young chef Max. REALLY? I ask. They all laugh. "Of course not! It is Bavaria. We have eaten with forks and knifes at least the last 10 years. Seriously. When we order the entire pig we eat with plates...but it is a tender pig and if you were at Medieval fair they would use their hands and shove it in their mouths!" he says.

Nicholas is the owner of a couple of cool places, one the Mercato that houses the Wein and Mehr that is where I met him and of course drank wine, and the Kruetzer's restaurant and the Kruetzer's meat delivery everywhere in Germany, Prague and now Switzerland. https://www.wein-und-mehr.de/
"Actually it is a silly story, I started about maybe 20 years now and started the wine business..." try to pin him down on the details and he is very humble and vague, "O you know I started in wine and about maybe I guess 6 years now I opened the Market here. It used to be a parking a garage and the ground level is empty and I said alright let's put a gourmet food and wine market in and lease to merchants and that is the busy markets you see today. Actually it is the biggest square meters of food suppliers in Regensburg and that I am proud of." If you want to know how to be a young successful entreprenuer you shall have to come to Regensburg and drink his great wine, chat with a lively political conversation of ALL of the movers and shakers in Regensburg including the Princesses and Princes of Thurn and Taxis and the Burgermeisters and the owners of Mulbacher's Jewerly since they all congregate here at the wooden tables to chat with Nicholas or eat his food and drink his wine! The ladys dig wine so I 'm getting meself some wine...
Regensburg, home to the famous Thurn und Taxis family of such nobility that they were the Post Office system of the Roman Empire...Prince Albert 12th´s title today is Post Master General...now that is a cool title! The most significant historical achievement of the Thurn und Taxis family is the organization of the imperial postal system of the Roman Empire and in 1615 all hereditary rights to the male heir of the Thurn und Taxis,
which as of today is Albert.

Below: GRAVENREUTHER Bavarian Restaurant
at Hinter der Grieb 10, 094 15 5050
You´ll love the young fresh style and attitude of the owners and team at the Gravenreuther...above pictured drinking a beer is Michael. "I want my team to have a good time and the guests, too. You should really decide what you want about the restaurant. Yet I don´t hire the traditional stocky stern German woman who comes to the table and when you ask for a little beer late at night they say...WAIT TIL YOU FINISH WHAT YOU HAVE!...You know. We have a young staff that only wears traditional dirndls on Sundays. They smile and laugh with the guests. We have something that is special to the Bavarian Restaurants in Regensburg...the food is of the highest quality and it is a little tiny bit more expensive than others...plus we have the famous Bavarian Tapas. I worked at one of the most famous Barcelona Restaurants 3 years...great fish etc. and of course the tapas. When I came back to Bavaria I really wanted to introduce Tapas my style...Bavarian Style...and I have. 8 different tapás from The torpedo prawns to the white fish that you are having now!" says Michael. http://www.gravenreuther.de/
"Yes that is a actual whole pig...the tourists love it...it feeds about 20 people and we mostly serve it for groups. You know 5 people could have a difficult time eating this pig!" jokes the young fun owner of the Traditional Bavarian Restaurant with a twist on the famous Hinter der Grieb alley...named Gravenreuther..."For the famous family who owned the entire street in the 1800s. They had a castle and stores here and later they split the stores to famous restaurants such as ours." says Michael Schulz. (The alley has the famous Kasper5, Vitus which is now Amore Vino and Amici and my friends that own the South African Cape Grape wine store...right around the corner from the Orphee...)
"We have a huge beer glass that holds 3 liters. Mostly stag parties or groups of girls will order that one...and it is relatively inexpensive. The one tradition with it is the table drinks one sip and the next person drinks one sip and the second to last person to finish it must pay for it...and of course some people drink or try to drink one liter of the 3 liters so that the person before them must pay...OOPS the problem is if the person doesn´t finish that one liter in one sip! Woops and the next person finishes it...Guess who pays! Some of the older traditional Bavarians and Germans come in and say we don´t want that tapa stuff...give us the white sausages etc and of course we have the high quality white sausages and Bavarian kitchen for these folks! And the beer garden...that is important too." He lets me try the white sausages tapas which by the way are only 2.70E each and it is a little meal...and yummy! I´ve had the soups a couple of em and the schnitzel here all very good...and his partner Rainer owns the dance club Zarap Zap Zap..."which is a late night dance pub and has Rock and Roll and people from 30 to 50s...fun people that love good music but not techno stuff...come try that too!" he says. http://www.zarapzapzap.de/
Of all the winter sports I´ve always thought snowboarding is the coolest and the one I would love to learn. When the pros go flipping up in the air and they swoosh through the powder it seems like so much fun. Meet the owners of the Adrenalin in Regensburg. The father Gosi and daughter 26, and son team all run the snowboard school and stores. The snowboard school is located in the Bavarian Forest and has 20 instructors! Cool. 24 to 25 years at the big store and he opened his first store 30 years ago.
Check out of the goggles:)
"You can come at 8am on Saturday and Sunday and we take a bus with people to the snowboarding school. It is a 2 day lesson and it is about 50Euros. That is it! It is really inexpensive. The snowboards and equipment all day to rent is only 23Euros and Maybe it is too cheap. We should make it more!" she says."Every Saturday and Sunday you can come and snowboard and do the lessons or snowboard down the mountains. It is up to you." Pictured below the snowboarders having fun. "You can learn to snowboard in one day,"she says. Her father says, "Yes it is easier to learn to snowboarding yet it is harder to master the snowboard once you learn it."
Gosi says, "It is my life. Snowboarding. I had the store a little one before my daughter Anja was born! It is my love. My hobby. I do it for fun." And when I ask his daughter to translate and ask her father the coolest thing about being the boss? He says, "A Holiday." really! All the snowboarders say they would love to work at the store it is so cool! "my brother goes every weekend to Austria and his favorite place to snowboard is Alpbachtal!" and her favorite?"I love to do powder and I´ve been to Norway already which is cool. My father´s favorite is Kashmir In India. He and my brother do the Fun Parks while I do the powder. That is more fun for me. Since I am born I´ve been snowboarding it seems." she says.
Nadine´s website google him;) He says with wonder, "You know I just opened the store from 12:00 noon to 9:00pm and people come wandering in here about 3:00pm saying O its opened early now! I am happy that they´re noticing that I am opened and it is my only work now. It is self-supporting now. " Good for Nadin.

The chocolates come from Tiroler." I try the chocolates and they´re very good. Yum . "I started cooking here about 3 years now. Everyday it is a main dish and soup and everyday it´s different. I make all of my lunches homemade. And of course the apple strudel."

A new brewery just bought the building that the bar is housed in and he had a couple of unsure moments, "there was a few weeks that I didn´t know where I would be and if the bar I would be able to keep it or not. But I negotiated a long contract with the brewery and now I am secure for 10 years. That makes me happy. I had an emergency situation where I thought maybe I can go to America and Florida and become a helicopter pilot if the bar doesn´t work out. I always wanted to do that. And now I kept the bar. Maybe somewhere in the future I would love to own a bar with a location of live music. Right now we can do Karaoke and DJ yet it would be nice to own a bar with a stage." He says about the new ownership of the building that houses the bar. The brewery is named Kuchlbauer. "The beer is okay and the guests like it. In the end beer is beer. It´s not the best beer in my opinion such as Augustiner but it´s not the worst beer. As long as they own the building I have to use the Kuchlbauer beer. And it is expensive that is the bad side to it." "My guests range from say 17 to 35 and every semester I have the new college kids. They like to watch the games on the sports tvs and to play fussball and just have fun. I am getting to old to go out every night with my team though! Now I like to hang out at home on the couch with my two cats, " he says. And how do new people know about his bar? except my website of course? "Every semester I do about 3,000 little presents of key chains maybe and flyers on the bar. I hope they remember me and come and have a good time." I ask if he makes his team stay on Sunday at 10:00am and wrap all the little presents? He laughs.".I used to when we opened the bar and now I have a company help me." It´s good to be the boss!

Here is the owners of the cool bookstore. Meet Ulrich Dombrowsky who along with his wife Daniela own Dombrowsky´s Bookstore Regensburg. The store won the award for the Best Book Store in Germany in 2014...Wow seriously that is incredible."Yes it is the award for an overall bookstore. For Everything. The atmosphere, the book readings, the children´s sections and my new idea the we say "Teenys" section." he says as he shows me the Blues Brothers posters on the wall and a little room just for the teeanagers. "They don´t want to be children and they don´t want to read adult books. They want their own section." Mr. Dombrowsky says. It is funny the little section where the teenys can sit and chat and talk about books that they love! The first of its kind "And we have about 25 to 31 guest authors every year that come and talk about their books. I choose the authors based on what I love to read. We work every year along with 8 bookstores in Germany and Austria and Switzerland to publish our own book named plus 5 which includes the best books of the year and why we included these books." He says. That is pretty cool too...here is the website to see...http://www.dombrolit.de/
"The bookstore is my love and my how do U say? My passion. I love books." he says. When I ask if he writes books himself he emphatically says, "ME? Write books!? Ah NO! I only sell books and I read books." The
specialty of his store is children and adult fiction. And in addition
to the books and the readings they have concerts and discussions here
every year. It is a funny funky bookstore that has that cozy feeling to
it. Hope you love it and the best is the online store if you´re out of
town-buy these books!

I guess when you live in a city everybody knows everybody. "I was a barrister in San Francisco and when I came here I met Heiko and he invited me to join him. " he says.

Um how do I explain Astrid and her husband, Stefan and his brother Hermann? It takes an entire afternoon to do that. Number one love is the first requirement...I could live in the garden of the Brandl Beer Gardens and Restaurant at least one youthhood...walking the wooden planks up and down the courtyard and garage, the ivy covered huge stone walls that enclose the old brewery fortress, the "would you love to see the 14thCentury to 15th section of the house that my husband's mother use to live in? I would love to make it a special guest house that wealthy Americans say come to and stay a day or a maybe week and see that unique part of Regensburg and history that they otherwise could only see in museums?" says Astrid the beautiful blonde wife of the 5th generation owner of the restaurant...Would i? Um the answer is YES!

hilarious banter back and forth between Astrid and her brother-in-law.

Monika Schmidt is the artist of these paintings, "They only are hung here. It is works only for my home. The Roter Hahn is my home and I paint these with love. They are not for sale." She says when I ask her if anyone comes in and wants to buy the paintings. "Yes they do but they fit here. I say o here is a wall that needs a color to fit it and I paint it and hang it here..." She says as behind her is one of my favorites of hers a wall of ivory with splashes of colors and words. They´re picassoish yet different...she has a world wide talent in her art and when I tell her that she is uninterested! She shrugs, "They only to my home. They fit here. Above the stairway in the main dining room is religious art depicting the giving and receiving of food as in the gift of life" and although these paintings take on the feel of the 1000 year old stone wall set below and behind the stairs where one of her modern paintings hang, they set the stage to let hers in. It is a elegant restaurant and hotel that showcases the beauty of the 12th century beams and the 15th century well, yet allows the famous Regensburg architect Martin Scheuerer to then create his beauty with steel structures and modernism. http://www.roter-hahn.com/
"The history of the Red Rooster is that there used to be a street named
the Scherer alley where how do you say..." she makes the charades of
cutting material and I say, "o a sewing seamstress"... and Monika
replys, "Yes and when the people with horses and carriages come here and
they take lamb´s..." as she makes charades come alive I shout, "lamb´s
wool! and it is a loom:" she smiles, "Yes and when they come they come
from the shearing to the pub. At the time it is the biggest pub in
Regensburg and they all come here. It wasn´t a restaurant at the time
only a pub and now it is a catering, hotel, restaurant. My children both
they´re involved in the business.My daughter studied at the Sansibar in
Sylt which is world famous and my son is studying to a chef. He has 1
and 1/2 years of master classes:)"
http://www.soundaktuell.de/ okay would you love to see the biggest and the coolest and the friendliest and I am saying again and again the friendliest music store in Regengsburg...check out the Sound Aktuel in Gewerbepark. 0941-46443-0.
Im Gewerbepark A 25,is where you can find these crazy guys...
and the big question is...does it really matter if the guitar costs
100Euros or 5,000E? "Yes it does. The guitars that sound the better
quality is the 5,000E ones. They sound better and you can definitely
tell the difference. That is about the range in the store. And no we
don´t carry Gibson guitars from America simply because they will only
deal in high volume and we deal in smaller quantity and high quality. We
do have Fender from America." I ask if he could pose for a picture and
you can see that he is a real guitar player since he doesn´t just stand
near the guitars but actually picks one up and plays:) Since
it is the biggest and first musical instrument store in Regensburg
they know tonsof people in the Music business and he says that he sends a
lot of people to the Music Academy to learn. It is fun at the store and
I played the drums in the private drum room...cool.
The number of people in the owner´s band he says, "Is about 12 to 13. We play about 5 times per year. I play the guitar only and everybody else in the store is a specialist in thta musical instrument...such as drums and keyhboards. Hmm and the way that I choose the guitars? That is easy I choose the guitars that I love to play myself. I try each one and play it."
