Here is Thorsten's Feedback:

very nice for two, too small for four people
Nice apartment in older building at the edge of the city center. Well furnished, only the bed (with a width of 140 cm) is a bit small for two people. Due to the city of Augsburg’s traffic policies, the apartment is all but impossible to reach by car and even parking within 1000 m of it is a no-go. The advantage of the central location comes with the downside of noise from tourists walking by the window talking loudly, day and night, and from restaurant guests (when they use the outside seating in the pedestrian area).

What I liked best: central location

What I liked least: administration of parking spots is fiendish and the apartment catches a lot of sound
