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.

The last place I expected find in Regensburg was a golf museum, but there it was. As it turned out we met the owners daughter, she explained that her father had been collecting golf souvenirs for years. Admission was 5 euro and worth the expense. The collection covered a couple of rooms and brought back a lot of good memories... More

The Golf Museum in Regensburg is a must-see for anybody who is interested in the history of golf. The research is impressive; the displays beautifully executed and the content extensive. I learned the game from my father, a serious student of the game 50 years ago, but I learned things I did not know, and had some chuckles on the... More

This museum covers well researched history from the 15th century particularly in Holland and Scotland and its later spread to all parts of the globe. Many items,such as the claimed oldest known club head, are extremely valuable and important to understanding golfing history. The collection is well presented .There are tiles from Holland depicting scenes of Kolf on icy landscapes... More

Had some free time in Regensburg while on a river cruise. Having read the reviews for the museum, thought we'd check it out. Peter, the owner/collector spoke to us for quite a while. The museum is small and you need to go down some narrow stairs to get to it, but fascinating for anyone interested in sports history. Would recommend... More

A delightful accumulation of golfing objects and posters. We just wandered through by ourselves and even my husband who does not play golf found this exhibition interesting. The posters were particularly interesting for their humour or for showing the range of people who have played the game.

While on a river cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest we stopped over in Regensburg. Not wanting to join our ladies on a shopping expedition we came across the most unexpected attraction in a German City. Billed as Europe's Premier Gold Museum. the three of us, all golfers eventually found this treasure under an antiques shop in Tandlergasse 3. With some... More

Situated in an easy-to-get-to location, the Golf Museum displays examples of some of the earliest equipment used in the game. They even have examples of clubs used in similar games in the Netherlands and Belgium. Posters and artwork abound and you can even buy original artwork. This has been culmination of the pursuit of an avid golf enthustiast and he... More

I came across the Golf Museum while my wife was shopping following our lunch stop in Regensburg during our Viking River Cruise last summer. It is located in the basement of a building. The owner is very passionate about golf and his collection of golf memorabilia. He has a lot of interesting items in the museum.
