Augsburg was founded 15 BC as a Roman military base. Soon after the fall of the Roman Empire the former “Augusta Vindelicorum” became Episcopal see. Because of important trade routes Augsburg flourished during the Middle Ages. Families like the Fugger and the Welser were one of the richest of their time. They lend kings and princes enormous amounts of money for their wars. The wealth is still visible in the splendour of the buildings.

    I'll be in Augsburg next weekend for a conference. Must try to see the Fuggerei, at least. -- Greetings from Frankfurt.

    Good job. I lived in Augsburg for three years and you found places that I missed! Augsburg is an important historic city and deserves more tourists than it gets.

    Wonderful pictures! I think the next time we'll visited my boyfriends parents we really have to make a trip to Augsburg. It isn't far anyway. Wonder why we haven't been there ...

    This pic of Patios of the Fuggerhauser reminds me of the interior courtyard of the palace in Krakow. Wonderful job on your page and pics.
