Augsburg is just about the half-way point along the Romantic Road and the size of the town, the places to see and the choice of hotel accommodation make it a good point to pause a while rather than rushing from one place to another on the road south.
The city set in a relatively flat area on the river Lech and the accommodation is mostly within the circular area formed by the bounds of the motorways around the suburbs and the river to the east. There are plenty of hotels in the centre of Augsburg for those who like to be in the thick of things.
The hotels below are mainly from the four-star and three-star categories and some of them have online booking facilities through our travel fulfilment partner Booking.com. You can check availability at those particular hotels by clicking on the button under the hotel.

Although Augsburg is the only location on the whole of the Romantic Road which can boast its own airport - a few kilometres to the north of the city centre - the airport no longer has scheduled flights. Augsburg has some of the best alternative options, though, with the massive choice of Munich Airport or the low-cost base of Memmingen both being close at hand.
Distance to Munich
Distance to Memmingen Airport: 86km
Distance to Stuttgart Airport: 150km
Distance to Nuremberg Airport: 162km
The main Augsburg railway station is located to the east of the city centre. Augsburg is a major rail connection for southern Germany and connects easily into main national and international routes, as well as to other locations on the Romantic Road.
