A nice example of an old church. A little dark but very good visit. Worth the half hour to see the entire thing.

Whenever I visit this church, it gives me deep inner peace. Stained glasses in the church must be seen.

It's a very big, very beautiful church. There's a lot of beautiful stone and woodwork. The statues are works of art. The hall is immense! Make sure to look for the smiling Madonna!

I found St. Lorenz far more awe-inspiring than St. Sebaldus. Take time to look at the many works of art and statuary that were saved from the bombing and now can be found there again. The architecture is amazing. Do not miss this!
