The »Fugger and Welser Museum« is not just concerned with the histories of the Fugger and Welser families. We also tackle the economic history of Augsburg and Europe at the time of the »Commercial Revolution« and this angle runs like a constant thread through the museum. It is a tale of the weaving of fustian, of foreign trade, financial dealings and the mining industry, of innovations in technology, of the emerging postal service, of the beginnings of globalisation and of the feudal rights and land holdings of the Fuggers and the Welsers around Augsburg.
Just as important is the contemporary display and presentation of museum content, which is why The Fugger and Welser Museum is equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
Interacting with the exhibits
