Tourism in Bavaria – easy day trips from Munich: Augsburg

When in Munich, do not neglect the possibility of day trips. I did three during my week-long stay in October 2016. Today, the city of Augsburg – an 80 km ride West.

It’s easier to score soccer tickets to an FC Augsburg game than to Bayern Munich. Look for them on http://fcaugsburg.de/ (the site is offered in English, too). I booked online and picked them at the WWK Arena.

 

I was lucky: FC Augsburg were hosting Bayern Munich that day. Arguably the most important game of the season. Listen to the local fans below.

 

A beautiful stroll in the October light through the old part of the city.

 

End your day trip with a traditional Bavarian meal…
…in the heart of the old town. When I showed him the FC Augsburg t-shirt bought from the WWK Arena, the waiter promptly pointed to the pen in his shirt pocket: Bayern Munich. Faithful fan. Good service though.
