Our city guide understood how to provide a large group with well-presented information throughout the entire time, everyone was attentive and interested - unfortunately the two hours passed far too quickly. Ms. Senckenberg-Schiller virtuously connected the relevant dates and people of Augburg with historical general weather conditions and thus created a memorable picture that everyone "experienced personally" could take home with them. A gift! Thank you very much.

Augsburg is definitely worth a trip, the tour by the guide was interesting and varied - really good. She also responded to the group and always had an open ear for any questions, which were then answered in detail. I would book again at any time. Thanks a lot for this.

The hardest part was choosing from the various tours and activities offered by the city of Augsburg. Booking and voucher worked smoothly via GetYourGuide. The guided tour of the Golden Hall and Fuggerei is definitely recommended.
