Church of St. Ulrich and St. Afra, Augsburg

4.6
#2 of 7 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.

  • With a little luck (or appropriate prior information notice by the friendly Lady of the Catholic Pfarramts), you can experience both churches during a visit. The Catholic Church of St.Ulrich has opened "always", the Evangelical Church of St.Afra only at certain times (because just the team for disease reasons is burdened, August 2017). The three-aisled Basilica of St. Ulrich impresses by its size, the filigree wrought-iron lattice, the magnificent chapels, the large font... The much smaller St. AFRA Church surprises with a beautifully decorated pulpit and old testament illustrations.

  • 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.
