Nuremberg is a beautiful city to walk around and most of that can be started from the church and square. Beautiful building and worth waiting around for the stroke of the hour and a little chiming show!

A gorgeous church in the middle of Altstadt! We loved the color and structure of the church..very ornate and detailed - gorgeous! It is situated in front of the famous Der Schoene Brunnen Fountain which is also quite marvelous!

Beautiful Church front. At the top you will see minature-men tolling some small bells. The details are wonderful. Like many of the churches here the inside is rather plain. We discovered in the Nuremburg Museum that the Jewish Quarter was demolished to make way for the square and church.

The church itself is a a sight to see with the Glockenspiel. It does provide you the ability to go to a higher balcony and get a wonderful view of the Christmas Market. The lights at night provide plenty of picture moments. It is also a wonderful landmark to allow travelers to use as a meeting place.

This is the church with the glockenspiel on it. The glockenspiel, which is average compared to Munich's, has the kings of old walking around it, with some other basic features. This is a smaller church than the others in the area, but beautiful nonetheless. We also paid 3.50 euros and got to go up some stairs and get a fantastic... More

I'm kind of "if you've seen one, you've seen em all." when it comes to these churches, but during Weinachtsmarkt, you can pay a small fee to go up on the balcony and overlook the Weinachtsmarkt. That alone would be worth the visit!

This lovely church (commissioned by Emperor Charles IV) has a "user guide" translated in a number of languages for visitors who step inside the building. Just pick your preferred language from the rack on the back wall of the church and then site back and read the commentary on the artwork before wandering around and appreciating how they brought this...

This is a lovely church with wonderful stained glass windows and some interesting side objects including a very small niche chapel with a touching pieta. The clock outside the church puts on a bit of a show at noon that is a delight. Worth the visit especially as it is located on the main square with stores, cafes, and various... More

I liked the way the Church is built, with very expensive decor. I didn't like to see mostly old people atending. Very rare to find youths in the church programs.
