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

Nuremberg's the Church of Our Lady (Frauenkirche), located adjacent to the market, dates back to the mid-1300s. This is a truly beautiful church and should not be missed when in Nuremberg.

Adjacent to the Market Square in Nuremberg stands this unusual church with spiky towers along the front gable lines, and an attractive clock which performs at midday. The church has a lot of detail on the façade and inside the portico. It is also attractive inside: Gothic with an ancient fresco on one side and a modern organ on the... More

This fourteenth century Catholic church is not as large as the two Lutheran churches nearby however is situated in the marketplace. One immediately is drawn to the Männleinlaufen, a mechanical clock dating from 1506. The Pope is shown seated with his prince-electors surrounding him and at midday the amazing full clock mechanism is activated complete with trumpeters and drummers. It... More

Located right in the market place area, this beautiful church is lovely to sit and reflect or to simply marvel at the artwork and architectural details. Several hundred years old, the church has an original fresco on the wall. We arrived to the church just after Easter Sunday. I imagine it must have been a beautiful Easter mass, because the... More
