Fugger-themed guided tours

Jakob Fugger »the Rich« was the great financial genius of the Early Modern period – and the benefactor of the world-famous Fuggerei, the oldest social housing estate in the world in existence. He brought the Italian Renaissance to Augsburg, and his nephew and successor, Anton Fugger, became the most important entrepreneur of his time in Europe.

Welser-themed guided tours

The Welsers managed one of the most influential trading houses of its time. Their wealth rested on the spice and cloth trades. As well as establishing numerous »factories« – or subsidiaries – in Europe, they also held a dependency in Santo Domingo – which is how they made the great business leap across The Pond.
