Church of St. Ulrich and St. Afra, Augsburg

4.8
#1 of 13 in Historic Sites in Augsburg
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.

  • The late-Gothic church is impressive and many art treasures. North of the Alps, there are little older Christian sanctuaries as the tomb of the Saint AFRA. St. Ulrich und AFRA is a steep brick Basilica with transept and long stretched East choir. During his school days in St. Ulrich und AFRA, Leopold Mozart here was a choirboy. Today, concerts are listed in the Basilica.

  • The temple, built for more than 1500 years, decorated in the style of a Gothic mature. It looks beautiful both outside and inside. Considering the building, don't forget the historical aura. In the temple signed world famous Augsburg religion, which put an end to the brutal conflict between Catholics and Protestants.
