Historical and modern sights in perfect harmony.

Will you be travelling to Coiltech Deutschland and looking to combine business with pleasure before or after the show?

In 1-2 hours at the most, you can reach many of Germany's main treasures, some of which are particularly popular with technology and car enthusiasts.

Here are a few suggestions for places that are easy to get to. 


Augsburg

Germany's second-oldest city after Trier/Treves.
A historic old town well worth seeing, where Mozart and Brecht also left their mark. 2,000 years of history: Romans and Renaissance, the world-famous Fuggerei, magnificent churches, craftsmen's alleyways and modern architecture. You will find incredible peace and quiet in the parks on the banks of the Lech and Wertach rivers and in the adjacent nature park Naturpark Augsburg.


Fuggerei The Fuggerei is the oldest existing social settlement in the world, a city within a city with 67 houses and 142 flats that has its own church. Jakob Fugger also donated the Fuggerei in his brothers' name in 1521.
Today, around 150 poor Augsburg citizens of the Catholic religion live here for an annual rent of €0.88 and three daily prayers.

  The four museums in the Fuggerei with a reconstructed historical flat and the exhibition in the World War II bunker can be visited daily with an entry fee.  


UNESCO World Heritage Site: "Augsburg Water Management System"
The "Augsburg Water Management System" has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2019, with 22 exciting places in the city and the district, including monumental fountains, hydraulic structures, drinking water plants, power plants, canals and channels.
Numerous other monuments of historical water management bear witness to the great importance of Augsburg's world heritage.
The mega-theme "water" includes resource protection, drinking water supply, hydropower utilisation, water hygiene and sustainability.


Rathaus / Golden Hall
The town hall is one of Augsburg's main sights. Master builder Elias Holl built the most important secular building of the German Renaissance between 1615 and 1620. The Golden Hall, named after the gilded wooden ceiling, which was built there in 1624, is one of the most imposing representative rooms in Germany and conveys the splendour of the imperial city.
