Trip to Augsburg, Germany

We are visiting this time Augsburg, a city in the south-west of Bavaria in Germany. It is known as the second oldest city of Germany next to Trier and the third largest city in the state of Bavaria (called in German as Bayern). It is also known to be a University town.

We had the chance to visit this city last July 2010. You can truly see that this city is old and historical because of the old buildings and architecture you see around especially in the main town.

The Augustus Fountain at the center of the Rathausplatz or the Town Square. This was taken during our visit last July 2010.

The city was founded in 15 BC by Drusus and Tiberius as Augusta Vindelicorum, under the orders of their stepfather Emperor Augustus. The name "Augusta Vindelicorum" means "Augusta of the Vindelici". This garrison camp soon became capital of the Roman province of Raetia.
