Augsburg has always been a city of trading and markets, and still offers masses of attractive shopping opportunities. Countless small stores cluster around the old town and Annastrasse, nestled amid the enticing aroma of cafes and restaurants. The famous Maximilianstrasse is known far and wide by connoisseurs, shoppers, pleasure-seekers and city-lovers; from an architectural and historical point of view, it is perhaps one of Europe's most interesting streets.
The City Gallery, which is the largest shopping centre in Bavarian Swabia, is also immensely popular. Spread over two floors, around 100 shops, occupying 40,400 m², carry a scintillating mix of products; there is also a multiplex cinema with nine screens.
What the Viktualienmarkt is to Munich, the Stadtmarkt is to Augsburg. Fresh food has been sold for as long as people remember here in the heart of the city centre. Business is always brisk amid the colourful awnings, and a unique Mediterranean atmosphere prevails. You will find everything that your heart and stomach desire!
