1. Stadtmuseum Aichach
The Stadtmuseum Aichach is a museum of urban and regional history in the district town of Aichach in the district of Aichach-Friedberg in the Bavarian administrative district of Swabia. In 1906, the city's historical collection was founded, which formed the basis for the local history museum opened in 1909 in the Aichach hospital. After several moves, the historical collection has been housed in the former Aichach hospital since 1973 and shares the building with the Aichach city archive and the crèche. After it had been closed since 1997 due to expansion and renovation work under the direction of the architectural firm Werner Plöckl, the museum was reopened on 17 October 2008 with a new concept. The permanent exhibition is housed on the upper floor and in the attic. On the ground floor there are event rooms and space for various special exhibitions.
2. Sankt Stephan
The Catholic parish church of St. Stephan in Gallenbach, a district of Aichach in the Bavarian administrative district of Swabia, was built as a baroque hall building at the beginning of the 18th century on the site of a medieval choir tower church. In 1910/11 the church was extended to the west and redesigned in the neo-baroque style. The rich furnishings of the church probably originate from secularization and only came to Gallenbach in the early 19th century. The patron saint of the Church is St. Stephen, who suffered the martyrdom of stoning and is venerated as the first martyr. The church is one of the protected monuments in Bavaria.
The Wittelsbach Museum is an archaeological museum in the Swabian town of Aichach an der Paar in the district of Aichach-Friedberg. It is located in the Lower Gate, built around 1418, a gate tower of the late medieval Aichach city wall. From 1989 to 2019, it housed a branch museum of the State Archaeological Collection. The museum got its name because of the extensive documentation of Wittelsbach Castle, which was the ancestral seat of the Wittelsbach dynasty from the 12th to the beginning of the 13th century.
