A place where people sit in the summer evenings with their drinks - either on one of the cafes or have brought it along themselves - full of atmosphere!

The Augustinerplatz is the place to meet for students, friends and tour groups. It also has a WC. Nearby is the Augustiner Museum.

A lot of people sitting direct in the sun. Unfortunately not so many places to drink something like people are. Even they are several bars. Who cares: Be flexible and sit where ever you want. Organize a drink or bring it with you :-)

It's a square outside the augustiner museum. It has steps. Young people like to gather and make noise. Locals complained so the council installed a noise meter which, rather than quietening them down was seen more as z challenge to make more noise. Otherwise a...More

A pleasant area within the old town, with part of an old wall and close to the Augustiner museum, when we were there (march 16) there were hoardings at one side for archeological work. Passing through at night time it is really just a place...More
