Situated about 40 miles north of Munich, Augsburg was founded in 15 BC under the rule of Emperor Augustus. Augsburg went on to become a center of medieval trade and banking, with the elaborate Renaissance buildings to prove it, and that, with the canals, give it an almost Italian feeling.

The main tourist attraction of Augsburg consist of the medieval streets, with its many old houses. The Fuggerei, the world's first social housing project for the poor is a must see for the travelers across the world. The heart of the city is the Rathausplatz, with terraces a visitor can have a beer in summer and a big Christmas tree in winter. Other tourist spots include the Dom, the Maximilianstrasse and the Maximilian museum
