augsburg

main square in augsburg with town hall and the perlach tower 

we have been at a birthday party in göggingen (southeast part of augsburg) this weekend. the communication was really good and mainly dedicated to the healer movie 'Wunder der Lebenskraft: Eine Erlebnisreise zur Kraft, die in uns wirkt' by stephan petrowitsch.

of course, we welcomed the chance to visit this old, old, old city (2,033 years old as founded in 15 b.C.), which is the 3rd biggest in bavaria after munich and nuremberg.
the most important part of its history is bonded to the fugger family, who were probably the richest people on earth in 15th &16th century.
