(4.4/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
As well as being the administrative center of the city, Augsburg City Hall (Rathaus) is home to an exhibit on the history of Augsburg. While admiring the building's grand exterior, look for the large copper pinecone ornament--the symbol of the city. The striking building is considered one of north Europe's most significant Renaissance secular constructions. Step inside to explore some of its most lavish rooms and study its exhibits. You must pay a small fee to visit Goldener Saal, the most impressive of the rooms. Marvel at its large doorways, rich ornamentation, murals, and coffered ceiling. Visit the Rathskeller for Bavarian food and beer. Plan your Augsburg City Hall (Rathaus) visit and explore what else you can see and do in Augsburg using our Augsburg vacation trip planner.

  • Walk on Augsburgu nice and easy. Just move from one to the other attractions. The old town hall is an interesting place. You can purchase a keepsake image of this building in different epochs.

  • So you have to see just the "Golden Hall" at the Town Hall in Augsburg. The interaction of gold, wood panelling and furniture fits together here. A highlight in Augsburg.

  • It is the main attraction of Augsburg and the right hand of the statue of Augustus ' fountain, located at the center of it, indicates the building do imperious. Has a base cubiform and stands up well 6 floors so imposing. The central part, ending in a Spire and is flanked by two mighty green onion-shaped copper spires. During this period, the square hosts, just in front of the Renaissance town hall, the traditional ' Christmas market ', and it is exciting to see the Sun, emerge powerfully the black shape and bully the Imperial Eagle, gold-coloured façade of the building.

  • The staff and the Advisory were very professional and we had to worry about anything. The prices were right and we were informed beforehand about any costs. All requests by us were taken into account and we can only recommend the funeral service.

  • The funeral was very professionally organized. On the recommendation of a friend I called the funeral service of the city of Augsburg. I had to call only these, everything else was done by the company. It is anyway preoccupied with themselves and the shock of the death and is as good as gelehmt to do anything and need someone who is sensitive and this burden decreases slightly to him. Had to take care of anything. The communication of the appointment with the Cemetery Administration, grave purchase, prayer, until the funeral, everything was done without friction!. Also worth mentioning is the completion of the formalities, as well as advice on the authorities.

  • The Lady took just 10 minutes for us. It was not entered on our wishes. Fees and prices did not know the Lady. A corresponding list did not have also them. The service we have received over a half a year later the Bill. It services, we expressly did not order, were charged. Also called us net prices and calculated gross prices. Retail gross prices are to be recorded according to price indication Ordinance. On our demand, the answers were delayed so long until she expired revocation Rist (Bill, no Bill). On my last letter, I have received no reply at all. To refrain entirely from a courtesy. The competent staff answered, if at all, only very unfriendly and has not addressed my complaints. No understanding. I would specifically discourage in the mourning and hustle and bustle of a death, funeral service.
