St. Ulrich’s and St. Afra’s Church is a historic church located in the city of Augsburg, Germany. It is named after two saints, St. Ulrich and St. Afra, who are considered the patron saints of Augsburg.

The church was originally built in the 9th century as a monastery church, and was later expanded and renovated in the Gothic and Baroque styles. It features a mix of architectural styles, including Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque, and is considered one of the most important examples of ecclesiastical architecture in Germany.

The interior of the church is equally impressive, with a series of ornate chapels, altars, and frescoes that date back to the Middle Ages. The church also houses a number of important religious artifacts, including the tomb of St. Afra and the relics of St. Ulrich.

St. Ulrich’s and St. Afra’s Church is still an active parish church today and is a popular destination for religious pilgrims and tourists alike. Visitors can attend daily mass or explore the church’s rich history and architectural beauty. The church is also used as a venue for concerts and other cultural events throughout the year.
