A few hours in augsburg - what to do?

by t_maia

Hi,

I will be in Augsburg for a job interview in the afternoon on Feb 21st. Due to my train connections, I will have about 2-3 hours of free time.

Are there any sights I should see? I intend to do a walking tour around the town center.

Also, do you kow of any good halal Turkish or Arab restaurants in Augsburg?

Thanks.

Travel Tips for Augsburg

Rathaus Platz

by Bregman

Visit the Rathaus platz. Here you can sit in one of the many restaurants and cafés, have a nice glass of beer while surrounded by the beautiful, colourful, buildings.

Also in the square you will find the tourist information office where you can get a map of suggested tours of the town.

The countryside

by Mikebond

Augsburg is a green city! Not only is the centre full of trees and parks, but just outside Augsburg you can enjoy beautiful walks across open fields, with trees and grass that let you forget the chaos of the city (even if Augsburg isn't chaotic at all). A really nice surprise!

Colonnade of the Augsburg Theater

by Nemorino

The main theater (the "large house") now has seating for about 950 people. Originally there were 1400 seats, including two levels of box seats which were left out when the theater was rebuilt after the Second World War.

At present the large house is used for everything, that is for opera, spoken theater and ballet, but a modern new venue for spoken drama is now being built nearby.

The theater currently employs an ensemble of 20 actors and 13 singers, as well as over 70 orchestra musicians and 32 chorus members.

All the world's a stage

by Nemorino


The theater's motto, ...die ganze Welt ist eine Bühne, written in red neon script across the lobby, is the German translation of a famous line from act 2, scene 7 of the play "As You Like It" by William Shakespeare (1564-1616). This amusing passage is also the source of the now-proverbial Seven Ages of Man:



All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lined,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side,
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

Maximilianmuseum

by Maria81

Where?

In Philippine-Welser Strasse, #24, that's between the Rathaus and St. Anne Church

What?

Maximilianmuseum is house in a restored medieval house dating back to 1546, and is a museum... with a bit of everything really, housed in about 3 dozen rooms.

There are two focus points: Augsburg's history (and they do have something to talk about, Augsburg being, after all, one of the oldest cities in Germany) and fine arts. All the exhibits are from the Municipal Museums and Art Collections.

While history goes awhile back, fine arts are mostly late Middle Ages in baroque and rococo style - mostly gold and silver artifacts and sculptures
