This tower will guide you to the center of Augsberg. When you see it, you know you are there! It's worth to go to the top and appreciate the view over the city.

Very beautiful view over Augsburg after a hard climb. After a narrow ascent, 258 steps reach the highest point, just below the bells of the tower. From there you have a great view over the whole city, with good weather up to the Alps.

As you climb the narrow stairs, you see pictures of the WW2 bombed out buildings and next to them the beautifully refurbished ones of today. Great for history buffs and everyone else.

This is a nice little addition to a Marienplatz visit as it is just off the main square. It's easy to miss though as you have to walk around the back of the church a little bit to the ticket booth. The climb up can...More
