Tickets available in the Tourist information office in the square open time for the visit. The visit through the down stairs lobby and up the staircase is no preparation for the hall itself. Very ornate and decorated everywhere to impress with sheer opulence. More interesting...More

it's small and you won't be here long to see it all, but if you take the time to read the displays you will see just how much the little city of Augsburg contributed to the world especially in terms of technology!

Fascinating recreation of pre WW2 building. Authentic architecture and material were used in its rebuilding. I never made it to the gold room that others glowing describe. Instead I opted for a cold beer in the basement restaurant.

If you visit Augsburg this is really a must see. The hall was destroyed by the bombing in ww2. Restored very beautifully.

You have to shake your head to remember that this building is not 200 years old but was rebuilt after being destroyed in WWII bombing. The Gold Room on the upper level is breath-taking, recreated down to the paintings of historic saints and rulers. The...More

The square in front of the Rathaus becomes quite lively during summers. If you are lucky enough then maybe you will find some event going on there (Christmas Market in winters).
