Church of St. Ulrich and St. Afra, Augsburg

(4.5/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • An absolutely interesting Church. Is constructed as a Protestant Church St. Ulrich in atypical orientation (North South) directly to the Catholic Church of St Afra.

  • We had to pass by this double church, which has a very beautiful inner and outer. It is situated almost in the Centre.

  • Church was super nice. The parish priest of the village of my sister dared them. The actual Pastor has served him. He was so mega rude and bad-tempered that was just happy that he did not trust them. Something like this should be a preacher. Or he was hopefully only an altar boy or something. Hopefully nothing higher than the spoil's the mood at the marry. Otherwise all have been super. Location choir, etc. all good. Limo was allowed to drive in the courtyard in ;-)

  • A long gestation (the first construction dates back to 973) led to the present form of this beautiful baroque church. Very fine rib vaults, as well as the three magnificent altars which rank on the high altar of 1604. Don't miss the crypt beneath the high altar.

  • The Catholic Cathedral (late Gothic Basilica) is like a cast. Very nice 30 m high late Gothic Vault. The 3 huge altars in the choir are impressive. A visiting the Basilica should you at one soon in Augsburg in any case plan.
