The European Fugger Road - cycling on patrician silver paths!

from Augsburg to Innsbruck or Rosenheim

The silver rolling coin! That was probably also what the successful businessman Jakob Fugger from Augsburg thought on the trips to the silver mine of Emperor Maximilian I. in Schwaz in Tyrol, the mine that properly filled his coffers.
Following in his footsteps, you will experience how close the Augsburg house Fugger was with the Habsburgs and how the innovative Jakob Fugger marketed his assets.
You will have plenty of time on leisurely bike trails along the Lech and Inn rivers. Including  highlights such as the former residence of the Fugger family in Augsburg, the world's first coin minting machine in the historic town, Hall in Tirol and the mother of all mines, the monumental silver mine in Schwaz. On your journey through time, you will experience the sphere of influence of this influential patrician family from the early Middle Ages in historical buildings, interactive museums and in the mine gallery. On top of that, the stars of the Zeiss planetarium and the crystals of the Swarovski giant sparkle like the tranquil villages along the way. "Good Luck" for this glamorous tour!
