Social Event


On Friday 29th March, we offer the unique opportunity to join our outstanding social event "Castle Kirchheim and the city of Augsburg". In a relaxed atmosphere you will have the chance to gather impressions of the Fugger Empire in and around Augsburg.

In the morning we will travel to castle Kirchheim to get a guided tour through this impressive building and the world famous cedar hall.
Afterwards we will continue the sightseeing program after a traditional lunch at the “Ratskeller” in Augsburg.
