Augsburg Tours

The Bavarian town of Augsburg is a historic palimpsest come alive. Dating back to 2000 years ago when it was founded by the descendants of Emperor Augustus, Augsburg came into its own in the medieval period as a free city and thriving center of the textile trade. The Fuggerei recalls the colony of medieval craftsmen while Fugger-und-Welser-Erlebnismuseum stands witness to its wealthy banking dynasties. Discover the serene ambience of this university town in its majestic cathedrals and abbeys. Marvel at the grandeur of Renaissance buildings like the Town Hall and the opulence of its Golden Hall. Evenings are the perfect time to stroll along the Mannerist fountains of Maximilianstraße after which you can catch a show featuring Augsburg’s famed puppet theater at the 17th century Heilig-Geist-Spital. Watch the world go by as you sip coffee in the shadow of the iconic Perlachturm watchtower and enjoy a slice of the sinfully rich Zwetschgendatschi, Augsburg’s favorite dessert!
