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!
