Founded between the Lech and Wertach rivers over 2,000 years ago by Roman troops, Augsburg is the second-oldest city in Germany. Today, one will find several signs of ancient Rome in the city and can also feel a flair from the south. Augsburg rightly calls itself ‘the most northern city of Italy’. A popular destination for city and culture tourists alike, many visitors flock to Augsburg to gaze at exciting exhibitions, to visit great conventions or to discover the innovative university. In this city, a varied architecture that includes medieval guild houses or Renaissance buildings is combined with top-class shopping opportunities, cute cafés and much more. No wonder, Augsburg is a favourite for tourists all year around.
