The seat of the Reichstag for almost 150 years, the Altes Rathaus is now home to Regensburg’s mayors and the Reichstagsmuseum . Tours take in not only the lavishly decorated Reichssaal (Imperial Hall), but also the original torture chambers in the basement. The interrogation room bristles with tools such as the rack, the Spanish donkey (a tall wooden wedge on which the victim was made to sit naked) and spiked chairs. Ask at the nearby tourist office about tickets and times of German-language tours.
