If for business reason or for tourism you have a night in Augsburg, you should visit the place with the night lights. The place is reserved for pedestrian, and in the evening you have a lot of people just drinking a beer on the place.

Augustusbrunnen was filled with vendors offering the usual fare of food and christmas ornaments. Very lively, the couple of snacks I tried were better than experienced elsewhere, overall, a nice representation of Augsburg

Located in the center of Rathausplarz, this huge, ornately sculpted fountain spouts water from the strangest places!!!! It was constructed to honor the Emperor Augustus whose statue sits atop the fountain while the fair maidens below provide the water show!!!
