Travel Tips for Augsburg

FC Augsburg

by bonio

Local football team FC Augsburg had a home game while we were in town, a rearranged fixture against Paderborn. Even on a freezing cold evening this was too tempting, even Mrs Bonio was persuaded to go along too.
Anyway a 1-0 win for the visitors and not a great game, glad it was a dry evening as the stadium offers little cover, but, at 10 Euros what do you expect?

Synagogue

by Nemorino

The Synagogue was built during the First World War, from 1914 to 1917. In addition to being a house of worship, it also houses the Museum of Jewish Culture.

Opening hours are Tuesday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Address: Halderstraße 6-8

The Cathedral

by Maria81

Where?

On Hoher Weg, about quarter of a mile north from the Rathausplatz

What?

This is probably one of the oldest Cathedrals in Germany, having been started in the 10th century - so much so that it's in Romanesque style (as opposed to, say, Gothic of the Cathedral in Cologne). It did get a Gothic makeover later, but the core is still Romanesque.

The present Cathedral is a rebuild of an older one that stood on exactly the same spot in the 8th century.

Don't miss the many treasures including:

- a number of fine frescoes including works by Hans Holbein the Elder
- a Romanesque Madonna
- what's said to be Germany's oldest stained glass window featuring 4 prophets. It's an original (which you don't always get) and dates back to the 12th century
- doors with fine Old Testament scenes in bronze (these are a recent copy, the original was another somewhat later addition to the original structure, built in the 14th century)
- sarcophagus of Konrad and Afra Hirn in the north transept (15th century)

Fuggerei: Exhibition In The Bomb Shelter

by Kathrin_E

The Fuggerei’s newest sight is the exhibition in the World War II bunker which has been opened in summer 2008. It shows the fate of the Fuggerei and its residents during the Third Reich, the destructions caused by allied air raids and the post-war rebuilding.

St. Ulrich and Afra

by Leipzig

The construction of the Benedictine Abbey begun in 1474. In 16th century the altars and in 17th century the onion-like curved tower is 93 m high.

Here you can see the interior of the larger church. Please have a look at my travelogue for more impressive photos from the interior.
