Augsburg is a city in the German state of Bavaria, on the river Lech. The majority of the population are Catholics. Universität Augsburg is among the best universities in Germany. Founded in 15 BC by the Romans at the confluence of the rivers Lech and Wertach, Augsburg, along with Trier and Kempten, is one of Germany's three oldest cities.

Particularly in the Renaissance, Rococo and Industrial eras, Augsburg played a leading role in Europe, but today it is the third largest city in the state of Bavaria. Famous sons of the city include the business magnate Jakob Fugger, the composer Leopold Mozart and the writer Bertolt Brecht.

Along with Hall, the Perlach Tower the most recognizable symbol of Augsburg. The tower rises above the 1182-built collegiate church of St. Peter in Perlach.

Augsburg Town Hall was built between 1615 and 1620 under the guidance of city architect Elias Holl and is considered the most significant secular Renaissance building north of the Alps.

Augsburg is, in Salzburg and Vienna, the third most important city of Mozart's life and the only German "Mozart City". It is with this in mind that Augsburg hosts an annual Mozart Festival.

Augsburg is a lively university city, a city for business and recreation. Enjoy traditional pubs, theaters, museums and lots of shopping. There are many shops in the pedestrian area, but do not miss going to the "Altstadt" with its fancy shops! There is also a mall called "City Galerie" with brands and large stores. Regarding souvenirs, go to the Town Hall Square to find Augsburg Brecht umbrellas and T-shirts. The local brewery Thorbräu sell Giftbox with 6 different types of beer!

Augsburg is known for its plum cake, called Zwetschgendatschi.
