A very large church with some interesting history, but not as outstanding compared to other sights as some of the other attractions in Augsburg. Possibly the most interesting feature is the lutheran church attached to the main catholic church as an example of historical ecumenical cooperation, not always evident in this area over the last few hundred years. Worth a... More

Formerly a Benedictine abbey, this Church has a rich history dating back to at least the 10th century (if not earlier)...The double church, half Catholic (St Afra) and half Protestant (St Ulrich) marks the site where the Peace of Augsburg ended violent religious conflict.

One of the greatest churches I have ever seen. It's bigger than the Dom in Augsburg and plenty of old beautifull paintings, fantastic orgue and lots of impressive details.

The building was heavily damaged during the bombings of World War II. Fortunately most of the organ and many of the decorations and grave markers were removed to safe storage. After the war, the church was lovingly restored. Try to visit the church just before one of the many scheduled concerts. The acoustics are wonderful and you will have sufficient... More

Tipical evangelical church, one of the most known in Augsburg. You can take a stroll across the Maximilian street in Augsburg and at the end of it this church will await you. Baroque elements as well inside and if you are lucky you can also listen to a Mozart concert, for example.

This one has it all - grandeur,light, iconic art and sculpture, liquid silence, 'the blessed mutter of the mass' - the whole catholic sensuality thing. Worth the mildly out of the way walk.
