"The Town" Augustusburg Off The Beaten Path Tip by Kathrin_E
Augustusburg Off The Beaten Path: 1 reviews and 5 photos
Since the palace and everything in it is Augustusburg's main attraction I am classifying the town as "off the beaten path". The shortest way from the top station of the funicular to the palace gates leads through some gardens and along the church, so unless you take the slightly longer way via market square you won't see much of the town.
There is not that much to tell about it, to be honest. The most striking feature of the market square is its steepness (14%). There are some restaurants around the square but don't expect anything upscale. Not all houses are in good shape - it hurts to see a house with an elaborate renaissance portal almost in ruins.
The neoclassical church should be of interest. It was closed, though, and does not seem to have regular opening hours apart from the Sunday services.
