Dom Mariä Heimsuchung information
Augsburg’s cathedral, the Dom Mariä Heimsuchung, has its origins in the 10th century but was Gothicised and enlarged in the 14th and 15th centuries. The star treasures here are the so-called ‘Prophets’ Windows’. Depicting David, Daniel, Jonah, Hosea and Moses, they are among the oldest figurative stained-glass windows in Germany, dating from the 12th century. Look out for four paintings by Hans Holbein the Elder, including one of Jesus’ circumcision.
