Augsburg was the largest city that we went to. I thought it was alright despite the fact that a pigeon pooped on my head there. Other interesting facts about the city:
- It was founded in 15 BC under the orders of Emperor Augustus
- The Augsburg Confession (the legal establishment of the Lutheran religion) happened here
- A really rich guy named Josef Fugger built basically everything in the city
- Mozart’s family is from Augsburg

I’m going to post the pictures in small chunks because there are many, but I figured I would get started with a map of where we went…
