Augsburg is a beautiful place which still embodies the life and architecture of the middle-ages when it was one of the most powerful kingdoms in Germany. This Cathedral is worth the visit since it is peaceful and not crowded and the architecture is exquisite.

It's a lovely old cathedral in the old part of town. Entrance is free & there is plenty to see in & around the building.
