Augsburg - Fuggerei

The world's oldest social housing complex, formally founded in 1521 by Jakob Fugger "the Rich", though construction actually started earlier. The first buildings were erected between 1516 and 1523.

 

This is the Herrengasse, sort of the main street in this complex.

 

And if you wonder about that "interesting" place name that flickr assigned, please see here in the Help Forum.
