We simply cannot fail to mention mansions of noble families among the monuments worth your attention. The mansion of the famous German writer Bertolt Brecht, which was built in the 17th century, was completely remodeled into a museum. The house-museum of Leopold Mozart is one more interesting destination from the excursion point of view. The house was turned into a museum yet in the late 19th century. The luxurious beautiful Welser villa simply strikes visitors with its beauty, as well as the house of the merchant Fugger. The latter mansion has retained the old flags with the coat of arms of the noble family. The entrance to the mansion is decorated with the sculptures of lions dressed in armor. You will also see a memorial plaque at the entrance to the mansion. The plaque contains the history of the building of the beautiful palace and enumerates the merits of its owners.
Church of St. Ulrich and Afra is an important religious attraction of the city. There is also a beautiful basilica which is located next to the old church. The first mentions of the church belong to the 5th century. According to a legend, in the 10th century the basilica was chosen home to sacred artifacts - the remains of Ulrich Bishop and St. Afra. Each year more and more pilgrims came to the church to see the sacred relics. In the 11th century the church was completely rebuilt and a monastery was opened near it. The church, which can be seen today by tourists, is the sixth construction. The Armory is one of the most interesting cultural institutions of the city. It has been almost completely destroyed during the Second World War, but thanks to the efforts of architects the Armory has been restored as soon as possible. Nowadays the sight is visited by thousands of visitors every day.
