A lovely place to visit in the centre of town...Plenty history and amazing to think that people still live there...Quaint isn't the right word, but it has a certain charm!

As a housing community, this isn't a large tourist site. There's the opportunity to see a display residence, along with a WWII air-raid shelter. It's worth a visit if you're in Augsburg and have the time - we walked there easily and entry is €4 per adult. As a functioning work of social housing within a city, it's an interesting... More

Additionally, whilst remaining a fully functioning... More

Once you read the back story, you quickly understand how brilliant this provision is. Modest housing near the city centre for the deserving. Worth a wander through

This is the oldest social settlement in the world and we did have a guide take us through it with interesting stories throughout. The museum is also interesting and you can see where Mozart's grandfather lived too. Definitely worth a visit when in Augsburg!

The story of these little lovely houses is inspiring and fascinating. The fact that a rich bankers dediced to build homes for the poor should be of example to many of today´s finance consultants…
