This beautiful Church of Our Lady Roman Catholic Church was once a Lutheran Church at the time of the Protestant Reformation. In the early 1800s, the catholic church purchased the church from the Lutherans. A Nuremberg painter by the name of Tucher designed the altar piece that is now known as the Tucher Altarpiece. The center panel is a painting... More

Come here at midday to see the clock chime. It's a good location so you can browse the shops and markets beforehand - because the actual thing isn't all that exciting... but since it was built years before current technology, it's pretty good too...

Similar to the other rebuilt churches, this one has a richer history between catholics and protestants. It also sits so majestically in the square. I loved looking at it both day and night.

The Frauenkirche (in English, Church of Our Lady) stands on the eastern side of the main market, and was built between 1352 and 1362 on the initiative of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV. The church is a magnificent example of Brick Gothic architecture. A notable feature of the Frauenkirche is the clock that takes pride of place at the... More

The church is so I prestige and beautiful. Our first stop in Nuremberg was the Hauptmarkt and we just happened to be there at noon. We saw the clock show, but it didn't mean much without the story of what it symbolized. Get the story first!

This church is particularly beautiful on the outside, perhaps a little less so on the inside, although the stained glass and the fresco are certainly worth seeing. We did not happen to catch the glockenspiel, but it is still worth the trip. Not far from the Beautiful Fountain.

This is an easy visit during Christmas market since it's right on the market. Not as big on inside. Make sure to view the show on the clock.

Frauenkirche or Church of our Lady is a large and rather plainly decorated gothic church located in the market square right across from the glockenspiel. It was almost completely destroyed by allied bombers in wwii and was completely rebuilt in its original design. It dates back to the mid 14th century. It's well worth visiting as part of the entire... More
