Augsburg is a thriving second largest city in Bavaria. Augsburg grew up on the site of a Roman military camp in the 15th century BC. The city owes its name to Emperor Augustus. Now the city houses the factories of world manufacturing giants (Siemens, M.A.N., NCR, the EADS aircraft manufacturing concern) and a lot of food and light industry enterprises. And this does not prevent Augsburg from remaining a charming old city with excellent tourist infrastructure. In 2000, the city was recognized by UNESCO as the greenest city in Europe and awarded for caring for the environment.
Augsburg offers a wide variety of museums. From the classic State Art Gallery in the Schenzler Palace, the Swabian Architectural or Roman Museum, to the more avant-garde Textil und Industriemuseum, the Puppet Theater and the Mask Museum. In the city, guests can admire dozens of magnificent fountains. The most famous of them is the triad along Maximilianstrasse: Augustus, Mercury and Hercules, erected in memory of the Roman past and symbolized the power of the free imperial city.
Augsburg gave the world very significant personalities in history - the richest Renaissance merchant Jakob Fugger and the German playwright Bertolt Brecht. In addition, the city was the birthplace of Leopold Mozart, the father of Wolfgang Amadeus and an influential composer. The Mozart Festival, held every May, is just one of the ways the city honours the memory of father and son composers. The University of Augsburg was founded in 1970 and has over 18,000 students every year. Augsburg University Hospital is the most important provider of medical services not only in the city but also in the surrounding districts.
Augsburg is a city that can entertain all tastes. After sightseeing, visiting museums and galleries, exploring the historical part of the city, and shopping, a better way to end the day is a traditional meal or a drink in one of the many great bars in the Old Town.
