Die »Fuggerei« hat ihren Namen nach
Anton Graf Fugger zu Kirchberg und
Weissenhorn, der hier 1601 seinen
Wohnsitz nahm, ohne jemals ein
Handelsgeschäft zu führen (er entstammte dem berühmten, früh
geadelter Augsburger Kaufherren
geschlecht). Die Fuggerei ist eines der
ältesten erhaltenen Steinhäuser in der
Stadt. In den Umfassungswänden
finden sich romanische Mauerreste.
Der Fachwerküberbau stammt wahrscheinlich aus dem 15. Jahrhundert.
Die nachmalige »Fuggerei« diente im
Spätmittelalter als Schultheißensitz
und später als reichsstädtisches
Repräsentationsgebäude.

1939 Teilrenovierung - das alemannische Fachwerk wurde freigelegt.
Umfangreiche Renovierungsarbeiten
1979/80; nach dem Brand vom
September 1985 wiederhergestellt.

(English translation:)

(First panel:)
The "Fuggerei" takes its name from Anton Graf Fugger of Kirchberg and Weissenhorn, who took up residence there in 1601, without ever running a trading business (he came from the famous Augsburger merchant family). The Fuggerei is one of the oldest surviving stone houses in the city. The exterior walls contain remains of earlier Romanesque walls. The half-timbered superstructure probably dates from the 15th century. In the late Middle Ages, the building that was later to become the "Fuggerei" served as a seat of the mayor and later as a building for the imperial representative.

1939 Partial renovation - the Alemannic framework was uncovered. Extensive renovations 1979/80; restored after the fire of September 1985.

(Second panel:)

In the midst of the Thirty Years War, in July 1636, King Ferdinand III paid a personal visit to Schwäbisch Gmünd and stayed overnight in the Fuggerei "...which in the company of an honorable councillor and offical scribe, Mr. Michael Wingert of Rinderbacher Thor, visited not only the Fuggerei, but also visited the church (= today's cathedral) and the two beautiful chapels of San Salvator, by which our majesty was very much astonished. Upon his departure for Stuttgart, a gathered crowd, numbering



40 persons, was rewarded with 100 guilders". (The Vogt Chronicle)
