Documented history of the Augburger Dom dates back to 823.
The Profetenfenster ("windows of the prophets"), showing Jonas, Daniel, Hosea, and Moses, are among the oldest (middle 12th century) glass paintings of the human figure in Germany.
Its oldest portion is probably the crypt under the western choir, laid out in the 10th century by Bishop Ultrich.
The building features Romanesque and Gothic frescoes, beautifully painted vaults, four paintings by Hans Holbein the Elder, and a bronze door from 1356 with 35 reliefs showing scenes from the Old Testament.
