Definitely a must-do if you're in Augsburg, especially if you are interested in social issues and history. It makes you rethink the purpose and essence of communities. The buildings are very well kept and there are museums / show rooms to illustrate the stories and...More

Great idea and fulfillment by people for the people. The simple understanding of helping each other is there in the buildings and rooms.

Built around 1600's and was worlds first social housing complex. bombed during WW2, and immediately rebuilt. Bunker shows interesting history of Augsberg and Fuggerei, with photos of visits by Hitler. Current accommodation and original housing with some original furniture fascinating. Well worth visit.

Interesting history, especially the facts regarding WW2 which were quite sobering. The modest entry fee goes towards the upkeep of the "village" so well worth while

The Augsburg Medicis, historical bankers of the German/Bavarian renaissance and finally, bankers (among others) to the kaiser and the nazis, the Fuggers are survivors whatever one may think of them. And their domiciles for work and play are pretty impressive lumps of architecture, while their...More

An early example of providing housing for the poor. Set up by the Fugger family, these alms houses were intended not only for the elderly but for deserving families too. Still rented out today they throw an interesting light on charity in Germany from the...More
