Interesting facts about the city of Augsburg
The city of Augsburg is the third largest city in Bavaria, after Munich and Nuremberg. The metropolitan area has a population of 830,000 and its economy is prospering. The city is one of the most important industrial locations in southern Germany.
At one time, Augsburg held the title: "world capital of the textile industry", but the city’s industrial emphasis has changed and nowadays, Augsburg is characterised by such industrial companies as MAN, Osram, and Fujitsu.
Augsburg is also home to historical attractions such as the Fuggerei and the Town Hall (Rathaus), and Augsburg is also well known in Germany and abroad, for its famous "Augsburger Puppenkiste" (marionette theatre).
Augsburg’s international importance was established in 1956, when the first city twinning project with Inverness (Scotland) was completed. Subsequently, this has expanded to include Nagahama (Japan), Dayton (USA), Bourges (France), Liberec (Czech Republic), and Jinan (China).
It is also worth mentioning that Augsburg is the only German town to have its own public holiday, the "Augsburger Hohe Friedensfest" (high peace festival), which is celebrated every year on August 8th.
