Rooms that inspire dreams

First-class events

Princess Gloria of Thurn und Taxis has always been deeply concerned to make St. Emmeram Palace accessible to as many visitors as possible. So it is only natural that Fürst Thurn und Taxis Museen invite visitors to view the palace, cloister, stables and treasury all year round. Event highlights in Regensburg include the Thurn und Taxis Palace Festival, which is numbered among the 10 best festivals in Europe. Over 30,000 visitors flock to the palace every year, turning it into a glittering and lively cultural venue. And our Christmas Market attracts visitors from all over the world to St. Emmeram Palace in the Advent period. There are good reasons why it is called the “Romantic Christmas Market”.

The Thurn und Taxis Family

The family history can be traced back to the early 12th century. The Counts de la Torre or Torriani settled in Cornello near Bergamo after the struggle for control of the city of Milan. They are, according to family legends at least, considered the forerunners of the Taxis.

The Thurn und Taxis Company

The House of Taxis is widely credited with ‘inventing the modern postal system’ in 1490. And although we are no longer involved with the Post Office, the Princely House of Thurn und Taxis of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II is still a richly traditional family business with a deep awareness of its roots.
