Lonely Planet review

The Maximilianmuseum occupies two patrician town houses joined by a statue-studded courtyard covered by a glass-and-steel roof. Highlights include a fabulous collection of Elias Holl’s original wooden models for his architectural creations, and a collection of gold and silver coins that can be viewed through sliding magnifying glass panels. Opening to the courtyard is a chic cafe, where kids won’t want to miss turning the pages of the ‘magic book’ that brings Augsburg’s history to life.
