Augsburg is an excellent place for a spot of shopping. Set amongst a backdrop of historical stately buildings, fountains and churches, the inner city has around 800 different stores, boutiques and speciality shops. The city centre and the popular pedestrian zone and "Annastraße" are just a minutes walk from the station. From there, the old town is also just a stone's throw away. Its quaint streets are filled with small, owner-occupied shops, pubs and cultural institutions. If you're on the lookout for something special, you're bound to find it here. The Stadtmarkt market, situated in the inner city, is a place where you can indulge yourself and sightsee to your heart's content – perfect for if you're in need of a short break from all that shopping. And if it rains, you can explore the City Galerie Augsburg, which has more than 100 shops to browse. The "Augsburg city website" also has an interactive map, on which the various shops and city centre hotspots are indicated. You can search for shops, sights to see, restaurants, cultural points of interest, and places to go with the family.
