You have to be Catholic or no apartment for you.
The rent is 1 guilder a year. While the residents are obliged to pray once a day for the Fugger family. There are additional costs. Residents have to pay 88 cents for the upkeep of the local church and 85 Euro for maintenance and heating bills. The fuggerei is still administered by the descendants of the Fugger family and financed through a foundation.
Then there's the Housing Association fees, gardening fees, public street fees, town crier fees, Pied Piper vermin control fees, cobblestone replacement fees, compulsory archery fees, jousting tournament fees, thatching fees, chamber pot disposal fees, ice delivery fees, hallucinogenic bread fees, water-carrying fees.
A tour of the place cost 4 X the annual rent. So that would be like what, 4 gilders. Whatever those are.
A lot more detailed information plus pictures of charming row houses all covered in ivy.
Place got tore up during WWII. (I bet that was us.)
