Augsburg – City of peace

Posted By on 2013-08-07


Many KUKAner will use tomorrow’s holiday in Augsburg to ride in the surrounding area for shopping. On August 8th the world’s only officially recognised holiday for peace “Augsburger Hohes Friedensfest” is celebrated in the city of Augsburg. Since 1650, on the “Peace of Augsburg” 1555 and the peace of Westphalia ┬áin 1648 which restored parity between Protestant and Roman Catholic communities, there are many beautiful traditions and festivals. Time to remember.

For those who want to learn more background and information, I have compiled a few links (mostly in German language):
