Escapes by GLOBUS

Off-season shouldn't mean second-class travel. With milder temperatures and smaller crowds, our Escapes tours mean Globus quality whilst taking advantage of off-peak deals.

When you think of Germany, what comes to mind? Varied and beautiful countryside, medieval towns with their old-world charm, a contrasting capital where history has blended old and new, or perhaps the thought of eating German food with a stein of beer?

A city within the city, the Fuggerei was founded almost 500 years ago by Jakob Fugger the Rich as a housing complex for needy Augsburgers, and it has been in continuous operation fulfilling its mission since that time. Here, in the oldest social housing complex in the world, visitors experience a fascinating journey through history—and the normal everyday life of its current residents. Continue to the Bavarian capital Munich.
