Beautiful Centerpiece During Christmas Market

Cathedral is Beautiful year-round but provides a stunning backdrop for the annual Christmas market. Enjoy every time I see it and will definitely visit again each year.

Note: Everything I am writing and wrote is my opinion, taste and experience only and could be different to others. One of the nice Churches in Nurnberg. Area also beautiful and it is in the middle of the old city on the way to the castle.

A great example of medieval German Gothic architecture. It is not the biggest or the most impressive churches of its kind, but is an elegant one and fits very well in the square. A very recognizable element is the mechanical clock. The church was rebuilt after World War Two because it was destroyed by Allied bombing campaigns. A good stop... More

We were in town and wondered through this cathedral. Its a lovely spot as part of a larger view of the city. We were lucky to be there when the mechanical tower performance took place (noon if my memory is working) - if you miss it you won't have missed much (like many of these mechanical clock displays through out...

This has the best view of the Christmas market, for €3.50. The church is a beautiful church inside. The clock chimes a special chime at midday- be ready with the video!

we happened to be fortunate enough to catch the noon clock display. The ancient clocks never cease to amaze me with the details. We were unable to go inside and view the cathedral but definitely hope to mKe a trip back to do so.

A beautiful old church right in the heart of the old town. We visited the church more than once since we found it to be quite beautiful. If you visit the area, you will no doubt come across the church, so stop in and see it.

The central focus of the grande opening of the Christmas Market where the Angel formally addresses the gathered crowd. The architecture is stunning. sadly we didn't get to see inside as there was a service going on but fully intend to go back another time.
