Ex cathedra[edit]

Does the cathedral have a name? Trekphiler 11:08, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

The German Wikipedia says "Hohe Domkirche Unserer Lieben Frau zu Augsburg", but I still want to confirm that the official diocesan website doesn´t seem to mention the complete name at all. What do you need it for? Jbhood 13:27, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Template:Infobox German Location[edit]

Please introduce the Infobox German Location with image. It provides a coherent look among German cities. Lear 21 23:01, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Mozartfest[edit]

Does Augsburg still host a Mozart festival? If so, it should be included here. Binksternet (talk) 02:39, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

It has: mozartstadt.de --Gwynplain (talk) 20:01, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Second oldest city in Germany[edit]

There are some cities in Germany which claim to be the oldest city in Germany, but none of these cities have the evidence to be, so it can be said that Augsburg is one of the oldest cities (as Trier, Kempten, Worms etc.) --217.237.187.19 (talk) 14:01, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Theocrazy[edit]

The infobox of the old Imperial City states "theocrazy" as form of Government. I do not think this a valid statement. The fact, that half of the city council had to be lutheran and the other half had to be catholic does not mean the city government was a theocraczy, because it was not clerics that were members of the city council or that ruled, but the (partly noble) elite of merchants and the craftsmen of the city. So the government might be called aristocratic, but not theocrazy.Ustersbacher (talk) 14:10, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Grammar and English[edit]

I will perform a minor edit to tidy up the English, grammar and structure for readability- and also add links tot the German Wikipedia article. I hope everyone will be happy with the changes.Starstylers (talk) 08:55, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Vindelicorum[edit]

I guess Vindelicorum is latin for something, does anyone know. Maybe it could be included in the text. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.255.35.54 (talk) 10:22, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

Ahh found it: Augusta Vindelicorum means Augusta of the Vindelici. I'm beeing bold and putting it in. 83.255.35.54 (talk) 11:01, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
