The Fuggerei: Why you can live in one of these idyllic medieval houses – for just 88 cents



The Fuggerei is the world’s oldest social housing project. It’s been part of the city of Augsburg, in southern Germany, for 500 years now. Special rules apply to live there. One of them – you have to be Catholic.

  1. Look how nicely these are cared far. That would be on the part of the residents, is my guess, and a big part of being able to pull this off.

  2. That size of apartment would cost a fortune per month in any metropolitan cities and you simply can’t beat the rent of 88 cents a year in Fuggerei. One can live there feeling no financial burden!!!

  3. If Jesus was crucified for peoples sins then why would they need to pray for the founders salvation? Not logical. That would be logical in Judaism & Islam where there is no Jesus crucified for their salvation. Religious doctrines aside, this is awesome. And hats off to anyone in founders family who keep this when they could sell or use it for profit.

  4. The problem is that the home is technically not yours if you are paying rent, even if it is only 88 cents.
    Any change in government can change that policy and you can be evicted. I'd rather have a system where people get free housing that is their Personal Property, and not property of the state.
    This would give even more stability and empowerment to the people who live in them.
