I will be visiting Augsburg mid Sept. This will be my first visit. Can anyone tell me what the weather may be like at that time of year? Also, can anyone tell me about a place called Bobingen? I will also be spending time there with my grandmother.
RE: re:Augsburg weather/Bobingen
14 to 22 degrees celsius, rain on 3 of 7 days, thats what the statistics say
I think it could be nice weather. The hottest period of summer is gone, but its still warm and sunny.
About Bobingen: look at their website www.stadt-bobingen.de
Its just in german, but you might still figure some things out.
Travel Tips for Augsburg
Want Oktoberfest in August? Visit the Plärrer
The last weekend in August is the opening day of the "Plärrer", Augsburg's annual big Volksfest, which lasts two weeks.
The festival is opened in the afternoon of the last Friday in August. On Saturday around noon, the big parade starts in Maximilianstraße and leads through the city centre out to the fairgrounds.
Dreaming of the Oktoberfest in Munich? Why bother with skyrocketing hotel prices and tourist crowds? Here's an alternative, not the only one by the way, which is just as "Bavarian" - even though Augsburg is actually a Swabian city!
See my five travelogue pages for more pictures of the parade!
This open-air venue for operas, operettas, musicals and other events was first built in 1929. There is seating here in the amphitheater for about 2000 people.
In the summer of 2005 the Augsburg Theater presented numerous open-air performances of the operetta Der Zigeunerbaron (The Gypsy Baron), by Johann Strauß.
In 2003 and 2004 their summer production was the opera Carmen, by Georges Bizet.
The tower in the background is called the Red Tower (Das Rote Tor) and was once part of the city fortifications of Augsburg.

Sts. Ulrich & Afra
There are two churches, both named Ulrich and Afra. One is Roman Catholic, the other Lutheran-the duality is a result of "Peace Treaty in Augsburg" which was concluded in 1555 between Catholics and Protestants.
The construction of the larger church began in 1474 just near the abbey church of the Benedictine monks. Choir with three massive altars and the Crucifixion altar were completed in 16th/17th century. Impressive onion-domed tower is 93 m high.
Late gothic basilica is richly appointed in Renaissance and Baroque styles. There are an elaborate wrought-iron grille, numerous works of art, and the burial vaults of Augsburg's patron saints Afra, Ulrich and Simpert.
