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.

This historical area is amazing! And works as a social area even today! Amazing that the most rich man in the World in the 1500th century, built houses to rent for a gulden (88 cents today) per year. Where the most poor people could live!...More
