Every residential building in the Fuggerei has two stories and is usually occupied by two parties. The ground-floor residences have a small garden. The building plans in the early 16th century were truly visionary for their times and achieved a standard of residential construction that has proven itself over the course of centuries. Most of the residences have a functional and ample layout with two rooms, a kitchen and a bathroom and are ca. 60 sqm in size. Earlier, entire families lived in the Fuggerei; today, the residents are predominantly singles or couples. There is also a so-called widow's building. During the expansions after the Second World War, this building was oriented especially toward the needs of single individuals. The residences are unfurnished; residents provide their own furniture.

Still modern after
five hundred years

The display residence in Ochsengasse 51 gives a realistic impression of contemporary life behind the doors of the Fuggerei. The residence is fully furnished; on the TV there is a film about the history of the Fuggerei and even a functional kitchen. Of course, the obligatory portrait of the donor is hanging in the hallway. The display residence shows visitors how timelessly modern the homes remain to this day. The Fuggerei building crew is working on ongoing modernisation. Contemporary standards such as modern, handicapped-accessible shower baths and district heating have been and continue to be installed.
