Overview
More
The history of golf comes alive in a heritage-listed townhouse in the heart of Regensburg, just a stone´s throw from the Cathedral. You will experience an unforgettable journey through the history of golf from the Middle Ages to the Modern Era. More than 1200 exhibits and rarities have been collected together worldwide, wherever the Anglo-Saxons left their traces, tastefully presented and atmospherically illuminated in medieval vaults of an old patrician house. Beside a variety of multimedia shows including a kids corner the curator of the golf museum and golf historian Peter Insam also offers daily guided museum tours.
