Topped by what are almost Russian style onion domes this church looks quite different from the exterior and is well worth a visit to see the three huge carved alters that rise almost to the very high ceiling.

The church sits on the high ground at the southern end of Maximilianstrasse and should be incorporated into any walking tour of Augsberg. The exterior is attractive but the interior's three ornate altars, pulpit, statuary and interesting iron railings are the real reason to visit. Be sure to visit the crypts in the basement; these contain the remains of several... More

This church is easy to visit and can easily be incorporated into a walk down the main street of Augsburg. It is impressive inside and has amazing altars. Of note are the wrought iron gates that look 3D from afar, and also the underground crypt of St Ulrich and St Affra. It always amazes when one can touch something dating... More

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. Not to be missed :- * the finely carved Baroque railings bordering the entrance of St... More

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
