Before I came to Augsburg I knew nothing about the Fugger family. When I left the city I was well informed by the family's wealth, social-economical status and political influences to the City and Germany's imperial power. The main attractions in town, whether you are...More

I’m baffled why this place is so high on Trip Advisor. If it were me, I’d skip Augsberg all together. There are no signs in the city to help you get here, it’s amazing we even found it. You basically pay money to walk into...More

Had to visit this unique historical town within the town. Fascinating history with the ability to view a house in its original form and also one in its modern form. I could live here.... it is beautiful. Well worth a visit.

Visited here with some German friends who explained everything to me. It was quite nice, and was interesting to see a model of inside the houses. I would say it is a must go place!

There are many other better places in Augsburg. This historic neighborhood is nice to visit but I didn’t enjoy that much. The tickets were expensive compared with the content of the tour.

A very nice walk in this historic quarter. You can breathe the spirit of the past century with a lot of open houses with old furniture and habits, but you can also imagine the horror of the second world war period in the bunker

It is not worthy at all. It costs too much, visitors are not well guided in the tour, you will see many banalities presented as wonders.

Very small townhouses for poor people for an annual rent of less then 1 EUR - very impressive what kind of social attitude Jakob Fugger already had over 500 years ago.

Yes of course, all nationalities are welcome, in your case it’s better to inquire in any German embassy in your country for more assistance and complete information.
