Water City

We live and love the water. More than five lakes, two rivers and countless canals and streams are to be found here – that’s why we called “Little Venice”. That’s the reason why Augsburg titled as UNESCO World Heritage in terms of water. We are just real water rats. No matter what time of the year, who wants to experience Augsburg, must go to, into or onto the water.

A water day in Augsburg:

  • Along streams, canals & historic fountains through the old town
  • “Ascension” of the water towers
  • Over the Eiskanal & the Proviantbach to the Hydroelectric Power Station in the Wolfzahnau, Hochablass & Kuhsee
  • Recovery in the Lech- & Wertach meadows

Peace City

Augsburg lives peacefully together – not only on paper. On the 8th of August we celebrate the High Peace Festival. And that transfers: we love the multi-cultural interaction in our city.
