around Augsburg

We are staying in Augsburg. Apart from Munich, what are some nice towns and sites to visit within an hour or so from Augsburg?

Are there any factory tours - toy, chocolate, wine - within an hour of Augsburg (apart from Munich)?

A few other places: the medieval castle at Harburg which can easily be combined with a visit to completely walled Noerdlingen; the monastery church at Ottobeuren which is jam packed full of more beautiful Baroque religious items than can be easily comprehended; the best preserved castle from Staufer times, Katzenstein ( www.burgkatzenstein.de ) by Dischingen. I know personally of many excellent churches and monasteries to the NW of Augsburg, many villages and small towns have them, and you'll probably be the only people visiting them.

If you get a good large scale (1:150000) map that shows and rates places to visit, you should have many choices of different types of things to see and can make a pleasant drive stopping at places of interest along the way.
