Regensburg: Goliath House
The 'Goliath House' (Goliathhaus), built in 1260, is considered one of the most well-known landmarks of Regensburg with its painting of David and Goliath done in 1573. Along with the Haus Heuport, this is the largest 'city castle' with in the inner city and is located on the southern base of the old roman fort. The name is likely not derived from the biblical epic, but rather from the name 'Goliards'. Theology students were called Goliards as their guardian angel was called Golias. It is believed that the present Goliath house was built on the location of the quarters in which these traveling theology students often stayed during the 12th century. This current house would over time belong to many patrician families such as: Dollingers, Mallers and the Nuremberger family.
