Fuggerei Augsburg

The Fuggerei, the world's first welfare housing project, was founded by the wealthy merchant Jakob Fugger in 1516. Hardworking, honest but poor citizens were taken in and given fully furnished homes that even included cutlery. Featuring eight lanes and three gates, the settlement is known as a 'town within a town' and comprises 67 two-storey houses and 147 apartments, its own church, fountains, town walls and gates, which are still closed every evening at 10pm by the nightwatchman. The annual basic rent for an apartment is, to this day, one Rhenish guilder – a nominal amount equivalent to just 88 euro cents.

The historical Lichtenstein Castle is widely known as the fairy-tale castle of Baden-Württemberg. Located in Lichtenstein, it stands at around 817 metres atop a rock spur in the Swabian Alps. Inspired by the novel “Lichtenstein” by Wilhelm Hauff, who is usually better known for fairy tales, Count Wilhelm of Württemburg had the castle built in Neo-Gothic style, according to plans drawn up by the architect Heideloff, in 1840–1842.

Along with the Roland statue, the city's very own 'statue of liberty', it still stands as a reminder of the pride that the locals have for their city, their freedom and their sovereignty.
