“reasonably interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

If you are in Augsburg centre then it is worth going in to see but wouldn't make a specisl journey. Its only one large room so its quite a short visit for the admission charged and you can see lots of similiar decoration at the numerous castles and palaces in the region. It does, however, have a good explanation in English.

“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

The Golden Saale is remarkable, both for its original creation and for its restoration after WWII. We saw it on our own when we first arrived in Augsburg, then a couple of days later with an English-speaking walking tour guide. The guide had a lot of interesting information about the restoration (this building was almost completely destroyed in the bombing) that was not available from other sources, so I recommend getting the tour!

One humorous bit is a sign that cautions visitors against bringing balloons into the Golden Saale--it is very serious, and makes balloons sound like a big issue. :)

nothing special, vacant building with a few bits of gold stuff around the room. Not sure why this is the number 1 attraction
