Augsburg is situated in the Bavarian region of Swabia, around 60 kilometres from Munich. As the third largest city in Bavaria, with a well-developed infrastructure, long history and proximity to the Bavarian mountains and lakes, Augsburg is a fantastic place to live and study. Augsburg was founded by the Romans over 2,000 years ago. Today, the city's most well-known sights include the Fuggerei (a unique apartment complex from the 1500s, donated by the famous Fugger family to the city’s inhabitants), the Augsburg Town Hall with the Perlachturm and the picturesque old town centre.

Another important attraction is the Augsburg Puppet Theatre (Augsburger Puppenkiste), which has won international acclaim for its marionettes and performances. The city has a long intellectual and artistic history, counting Leopold Mozart, Rudolf Diesel, Jakob Fugger or Bertolt Brecht among its most famous citizens.

Cultural attractions aside, Augsburg also really knows how to party! There are numerous restaurants, bars and clubs,and many events and celebrations take place on the city’s streets throughout the year. Five cinemas and a large theatre provide further entertainment. In addition, a number of parks, an Olympic white-water course and the “Siebentischwald” forest offer facilites for sports and recreational activities.
