Don't miss a visit to this cathedral. The detail of the stained glass and iron work is magnificent!

The cathedral, whose origins go back to the 9th century, retains the twin towers on the west front that were built in 1150, and two Romanesque crypts. If visiting Augsburg in a weekend, try to be at the cathedral at 6 pm for the concerts.

It's a rare beautiful Gothic church in Bavaria. I wouldn't recommend the museum unless you're REALLY interested in bishops robes...
It's one of the main sights of the city and is only a 5 minute walk from the city center. The hilltop with the cathedral is the oldest part of the city where the original Roman encampment was located in 15BC...check out the "Roman wall" just outside the church (they're replicas, the originals are in the roman museum on the other side of town)

The cathedral is very beautiful! The most interesting part is the crypt underneath the alter. If you are in Augsburg I would highly recommend seeing it - I think its more breathtaking than St. Ulrich and St. Afra Churches!
