J.L.L. Brandner manufactory: History of the hotel building

Until 1985, the J. L. L. Brandner manufactory from Regensburg exported high-quality church supplies the world over. Scenically located on an island in the Danube river, the building was recently renovated to house a first-class hotel. Fridolin Schneider remembers: The conference room was once a metalworking shop, and the large staircase in the hotel lobby was once the site of a rumbling steam engine.
