The textile quarter of Augsburg
(Detail of a town map from 1934)


In Augsburg for centuries many crafts enterprises were already occupied with the textile production. Also big genders as for example the Fuggers and Welsers have arisen from it later. Then from the end of the 18th and particularly in the 19th century, in the age of the industrial revolution, the textile industry in Augsburg experienced an inconceivable boom. All around the town grew big textile factories from the ground which offered jobs to many thousand people.

Particularly many textile enterprises settled in the still free areas  east of the town, between the town walls and the river Lech. Therefore, this area is called "textile quarter".

As rapidly as the textile industry had boomed, its unstoppable decline occurred at the end of 20th century in Augsburg, caused by the overpowering competition especially from Asia. Virtually all textile factories were closed step by step and torn off partly or completely. Only few factory buildings are preserved till today and maintained as industrial monuments. This cache will lead you to some places at which once big manufacturing plants stood.

At all stages (except Stage 4) you find a small container or an adhesive label with a card. This shows you a historical picture and information about the factory which once stood at this place. Secondly you find a task which you must solve to find the next stage and at the end the final.

Please put back again the objects in the container, also the info card at the final.

I have found the pictures and information on the following websites http://www .das-textilviertel.de/geschichte.html and http://www.stadtlexikon-augsburg.de. If you want to know more about this subject, look in there.

This walk around the textile quarter can be made on foot or by bike on ways, which are good throughout. Only at stage 4, 5, 6 and 7 you must leave the way few steps.

01 PARKING :                                                                                                                 N48° 21.870' E10° 54.920'

It would be better to use public means of transportation, or to come by bike.

(a=1, b=2. . . z=26).

Note : A = ??
