We stumbled upon the cathedral by accident almost. My son had been wondering around town, saw it from the outside, and told me about it. He didn't know if people were allowed to enter - as it is still being used as a place of worship. We went back together the next day, and ventured in. It was quite magnificent.... More

The Dom is an Augsburg landmark. It though is distinctly German and therefore very different to the churches you will find in other areas of the world. Well worth the time to drop in. Entry is free.

We had the place to ourselves, apart from a lady cleaning & a homeless guy sleeping in one of the small side chapels. The cathedral dates from the 10th C (remains of an earlier basilica are just outside),... More

Beautiful cathedral mostly from the inside. There is also a nice museum there. Free entrance to the cathedral itself and 4 € to the museum.

The previous reviewer said that photos were banned but I think that is only during services. Better outside than in.

Germany is not lacking in beautiful churches both inside and outside. I was respectful and did not take photos of the interior as is requested on the board when you enter. All the beauty remains in my mind.

Very interesting 11-14th Century church with much to see inside. Be sure to visit the garden on the grounds. Beautiful trees and flowers and a quiet place to contemplate.

This building is so unique you could spend days here. It has different level and looks depending on the sun and where you stand. Excellent - Must See!
