An impressive Gothic building with a rich history and beautiful works of art is Augsburg Cathedral. Among other things, it is called the "High Cathedral of the Visitation of Mary" and was built around the year 1000. In the immediate vicinity is the Augsburg City Hall - an imposing Renaissance building, which was completed in 1620 and today serves as the seat of the city administration. For those interested in art, we recommend a visit to the Maximilian Museum. Here you will be presented the history of art and culture from ancient times to the Baroque period.
