Augsburg culture: Romans, Brecht and the Puppenkiste puppet theater

Bavarians not only value their cozy traditions, but also their culture. Augsburg is a thrilling place to visit, with around 2,000 years of history.

 

In Augsburg tradition and culture can look back over a long history, stretching from the Romans to the era of the textile industry, through to the Augsburg Puppenkiste puppet theater and Bertold Brecht, who attended high school here. Augsburg Zoo and the Botanic Gardens offer ideal destinations for excursions. The city’s own theatre, its open-air stage, the Sensemble Theater, the culture house abraxas and the park theater are some of the foremost representatives of Augsburg’s cultural side. Anyone visiting the city shouldn’t miss a trip to one of its most famous sights: the Fuggerei. The Fuggerei is the world's oldest social housing complex (1521). Guests at the 4-star hotel Steigenberger Drei Mohren enjoy luxury steeped in tradition during their stay in Augsburg.
