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.

  • It is interesting attractions and it looks nice. The complex is well preserved and people still live here. The community has long history and there are people live here for hundreds of years.  more »
  • Nice open air attraction. A trip back in time since one can visit the bunker and even a former apartment concept from the decades ago. A must see!  more »
  • Certainly worth a visit to see this unique and ancient "public housing" site. Also worthwhile place to have a drink and eat dinner at the German tapas restaurant.  more »
