Armory house

The famous Armory House of Augsburg is often called the “Arsenal”, or its German equivalent “Zeughaus”. It was constructed by the local architect Elias Holl, who later designed the town hall and other famous buildings in Augsburg. However the Armory House was his debut. It was already then that Holl’s craving for construction of pompous many-storeyed buildings became apparent.

This house with a bronze sculpture of St. Michael on the façade immediately took fancy of the citizens, and the town council paid Holl 50 golden guldens as a bonus – it was a considerable amount at that time. Today tourists are amazed at the inconsistency of the luxurious look of the building and its purely practical purpose – basically, it was an armour warehouse for the local garrison. The building was used as an “Arsenal” until mid-19th century. Today there is an educational center of Augsburg, an exhibition complex and a beer restaurant here.
