Fuggerei, Augsburg

4.5
Fuggerei is the oldest social housing project in the world, set up in the 16th century. Explore the walled enclave, and visit the model home to see what the houses look like inside. A visit to the museum, Catholic church, and a World War II bunker is included with your admission. In the museum, see what the apartments looked like when they were built more than 400 years ago, and learn more about the ethos of this project. Make sure to stop for a coffee and slice of cake in the restaurant. Guided tours are available. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Augsburg holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Fuggerei and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • A special place. It's proof that even five hundred years ago, there was an effort to help those in need of rich people. Worth a look.

  • This impressive social residential complex is situated in the suburb of Jak upper. And it is still inhabited. Visit the model home and the bunkers.

  • This set of small houses (a small neighborhood even) is worth a visit. It is curious, it has charm and a sense of tranquility... Pity that no comment would be french. The person of the counter was lovely and kept our suitcase during the visit.
