Renaissance City

Augsburg Town hall, copyright Regio Augsburg Tourismus GmbH
Augsburg lies between the rivers Lech and Wertach and is named after its founder, Emperor Augustus. Two patrician families - the Fuggers and the Welsers - transformed Augsburg into a rich and influential town through their banking and trading activities. The city prospered again after the Thirty Years War, this time thanks to its goldsmiths, silversmiths and printers. The legacy left by the Roman, rococo and Renaissance eras still draws visitors to Augsburg today, as does its reputation as a modern city of culture.
