The Regen is a tributary of the Danube, and at 190.93 kilometres, it is the second-longest river in the Upper Palatinate, after the river Naab. It flows along the edge of Regenstauf, a small town in the Regensburg district. The Valentinsbad Lido is situated in the middle of this attractive river landscape in the northern part of the Regen valley. From May through to September, its spacious lawns beckon guests to recline on the manicured grass after a splash around in the river. Changing rooms, showers and bathroom facilities are all available on site. There are also football pitches and volleyball courts for those who enjoy a lot of physical activity. All that moving around is bound to whet up an appetite! Although BBQs are sadly prohibited, swimmers and other sporting types can recharge their batteries in the adjoining "Valentinsbad" restaurant, which also has a beer garden. The menu includes "Wiener Schnitzel" with fries and a side salad and Hawaii Toast. And one more tip for those travelling from further away: the Valentinsbad Lido offers accommodation with views over the river. However, there are only one single room and three double rooms, so best to book early!
