"Gruss Dich! I would like to know where one can purchase fat free greek yogurt in Augsburg. Thanks" (posted 01/03/2015)

Fatfrei probably not only reduced fat. There is certainly the case Edeka, perhaps at Aldi or Liedl. These and other supermarkets are mainly in the suburbs, part also in the city. Just ask the people times. Wolfgang

There are of course various fairs in beautiful churches with appropriate church music (Basilica of St. Ulrich, Cathedral, St. Moritz, Holy Cross, etc.). Exhibitions start at about 16 clock (more for kids) to 22 clock. Attention: the churches are usually crowded, so arrive on time. And Augsburg and the surrounding area has about as many inhabitants as Malta, so it depends on where you live. My secret tip: we always go by 22 clock in the Basilica of St. Ulrich and Afra and indeed in the east choir behind the altar. You can sit in the choir stalls and indeed directly under the famous Gothic Christmas altar. It is then for you lit around darkness, only about 20 large Christmas trees with candles. Enchanting, unforgettable. Best regards Wolfgang Bremser
