Augsburg Cradle of the German Renaissance

9 December 2021

5 days from £1,925pp

On this new Art Pursuits Abroad study tour we are going to explore the riches of Augsburg’s Renaissance heritage. 
It is not by surprise that the German Renaissance is dawning in Augsburg. Ever since the city had been founded at the instigation of Emperor Augustus in 15 BC its cultural and economic ties with Italy were uninterrupted. When this former capital of the Roman province of Raetia made its way into the Middle Ages, it’s the lucrative trade with Italy that allows Augsburg to skyrocket as a commercial centre. This meteoric rise is closely connected with the name of one family: the Fuggers. As merchant-bankers they not only financed kings and emperors like Maximilian I and Charles V but also displayed their wealth as art patrons. It is through them that Renaissance art is first introduced to Augsburg. On this new Art Pursuits Abroad study tour we are going to explore the riches of Augsburg’s Renaissance heritage.
