Wasser > Drinking water

What did we learn from that? That water is much (!) more than just drinking water when it comes to social development. Because the perhaps unique historical rise of the over 2,000 year old Roman and Fugger city of Augsburg is a single “water story”, which you can still experience today very well and in almost every spot. An incredibly valuable and up-to-date memorial in times of increasing scarcity of the future resource water.
