“Worth a photo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The City Hall is very representative of a city which was once the capital of Bavaria. It is a magnificent building and well worth seeing.

“Rathaus Augsburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Was able to go to the gold room In the Rathaus last week. It was redone for the 2000 year celebration a few years back. I remember it as a small child and seeing it again this year in it's newer condition was staggering. The gold leaf is amazing. The coffered ceilings in the ante-rooms are also stunning, although not guilded. This was a very inexpensive self guided tour. There is a lady who takes your money and then gives you a guide so you can read about it in the language of your choice. Simply amazing to see. Well worth the visit when in Augsburg.

“Something special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

The City Hall was rebuilt after being alterdd by Allied bombing in the war. The decorationsd and guilding are fantastic. A nice touch is the 'time line' for the visually impaired. Well worth a visit.

“Quite possibly the most beautiful Town Hall in Germany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Having visited a fair few town halls throughout central Europe, Augsburg's Rathaus struck me as one of the most impressive. The location is breath taking and there's no finer example a Renaissance style building north of... Milan. The jewel in the crown of the building is the amazing and exquisite Golden Hall. Words fail me but it is well worth spending as much time as you can imbibing the intricate details as well as soaking up the glorious murals and the ceiling.
