In Weimar, follow your Tour Director for a pleasant walk through this pretty town.

Admire the impressive medieval ramparts as you walk through the pedestrian area of the charming Old Town and see St. Sebald Church, painstakingly reconstructed as a monument to peace from the rubble of near-total wartime destruction. Also admire the Schöner Brunnen, a 14th-century fountain dedicated to the Holy Roman Empire. It is said that it brings good luck to spin the two brass rings.

Drive south through Bavaria to the city of Augsburg. During your orientation see the Cathedral, the Rathausplatz, the Augustus Fountain and the Perlach Tower, the city's most famous landmarks. The highlight is a visit to the TOWN HALL with its Baroque Golden Hall. Later, an interesting visit to the Fuggerei has been included. A city within the city, the Fuggerei was founded almost 500 years ago by Jakob Fugger the Rich as a housing complex for needy Augsburgers, and it has been in continuous operation fulfilling its mission since that time. Here, in the oldest social housing complex in the world, visitors experience a fascinating journey through history – and the normal everyday life of its current residents. Continue to the Bavarian capital Munich.
