Tour description

When we talk about a traditional German city, we can talk about Augsburg: The oldest city in Bavaria and one of the oldest in all of Germany.


Do you know any place on the planet where renting a house costs only 0.88 cents? Augsburg is the only place in the world where you can experience it. During our tour we will talk about the importance of Augsburg for the Roman Empire in the year 15 BC and its development as a city in the times of Jacob Fugger, the richest and most powerful man in the world at his time.

You will know:

  • Augsburg Puppetchest - one of the most important and famous puppet theaters in Germany.
  • Maximilian's street - The fountain of the Renaissance.
  • Schaezlerpalais - The most important private and commercial residence of the 18th century.
  • Augsburg Town Hall - Town Hall equipped with a hall completely made of gold.
  • The Perlach Tower - originally built as a watchtower, today it has an excellent view.
  • Fuggerei - the oldest social settlement in the world.


 Nice to meet you soon. Servus!

Guide super nett, allerdings schlecht informiert. Er erzählt viele offensichtlich falsche Fakten über die Stadt, was alleine durch das Lesen der öffentlichen Schautafeln feststellbar ist. Inhaltlich einfach schlecht vorbereitet, bis grob improvisiert.
