In September 2011, Amazon opened a new Fulfillment Center in Graben close to Augsburg (Bavaria). With a size of 110.000 square meters or 17 soccer fields it is one of the largest Fulfillment Centers in Germany. It consists of six warehouses. It also has a direct connection to the logistics company DHL allowing for an exceptionally fast delivery to the customer.
Shaped by the Romans over 2,000 years ago, Augsburg is one of the oldest cities in Germany. Now a bustling university town, it retains its medieval charm in the beautifully elaborate buildings dotted around the town.
The birthplace of business tycoon Jakob Fugger, composer Leopold Mozart and writer Bertolt Brecht – Augsburg has a rich cultural heritage. And located in southwest Bavaria, with Wurzberg to the north and Fussen to the south, it’s an ideal base for exploring the Romantic Road.
Wandering through the leafy town, you’ll find countless opportunities to immerse yourself in the local culture. The famous Augsburger Puppenkiste marionette theatre has shows running throughout the day. While the central Naturmuseum specialises in fossils exhibitions and a Planetarium for budding astronomers. For those wanting to relax, the heart of the city boasts the Rathausplatz. This Renaissance style town square is lined with street cafes, perfect for watching the world go by – or even indulging in a slice of the Bavarian plum delicacy Zwetschgendatschi.
