This is one of the most interesting gothic churches of Germany. It dates from the 14th century and contains an amazing number of artworks, which would be sufficient to fill-up an entire museum: paintings, polyptychs, winged altarpieces, stained glass windows, wooden and stone sculptures, decorated pulpits, sepulchres, statues etc., most of them dating from the 13th to the 16th century....

Very interesting old Church one of the attractions in Nuremberg right on the Lorenzer Platz with a lot of shops, restaurants and Christmas market in the winter. You can take a brake here for an ice cream or beer in the summer or for a mulled wine with cinnamon in the winter. Pure charming.

I love this church because of the Viet Stoss carving hanging in the apse. The craftsmanship is delicate but compelling. It is easy to see details because of tall gothic windows.

A beautiful church, with a special atmosphere inside. Splendid woodworks. A place where one wants to sit and contemplete the past. Renovation and reconstruction works still inside.

A visit to the Lorenzkirche is a must in Nürnberg, it has a lot of important art. The world famous "Engelsgruss" from Veit Stoss hanging from the roof is alone worth a visit. It has also a very big organ from 1937, and 2 more organs. At 4pm there is 30 min organ concert playing all 3 at the same... More
