Church of St. Ulrich and St. Afra, Augsburg
(4.5/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
The sarcophagi of Saint Afra and Saint Ulrich rest in peace in Church of St. Ulrich and St. Afra. The foundations of the current churches are built on top of the remains of two houses of worship that may have dated back to the fifth and sixth centuries. Surprisingly, the architecture you'll admire was erected mainly after the 1970s, and the abbey's Gothic-looking structures with high aches are a recreation of the past. With our world travel planner, Augsburg attractions like Church of St. Ulrich and St. Afra can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
