The Roman Emperor Augustus founded the city of Augsburg and gave it its name. 2000 years later, it still captivates visitors. Begin your city walk through the pretty Augsburg at the Fuggerei, a complex of buildings dating back to the 16th century. It is the oldest surviving social settlement in Germany and 'a city within a city', with its own city gates and walls. Afterwards, the medieval alleys of the old town with their canals invite you to stroll. In the evening, the students of the young university provide a vibrant atmosphere in the many bars and pubs - ideal to end the evening after a visit to the theater. Augsburg is rich in culture and tradition. The IntercityHotel Augsburg is only a few minutes' walk from the historic city center, making it an ideal location.
