What people are saying about Fuggerei

Went on August 9th, 2022 with a very knowledgeable, sensitive and committed guide Peter Kraus. A very great experience. He brought Augsburg's history closer to us in a way we haven't experienced in a long time. We'll be back and will definitely do the Augsburg Unesco World Heritage Tour. If possible with Peter!

The hardest part was choosing from the various tours and activities offered by the city of Augsburg. Booking and voucher worked smoothly via GetYourGuide. The guided tour of the Golden Hall and Fuggerei is definitely recommended.

Get great impressions. Augsburg is very, very beautiful. The leadership was great. Unfortunately too many registrations.

Our tour guide was excellent. Was the most informative tour I have ever had.

Informative, interesting, fabulous knowledge shared in a personal way.
