Lutheran Cathedral you must see

Beautiful old Lutheran church that has been rebuilt after the war. Cost is around 2€ Donation per person. We got a 3D puzzle as a souvenir for 12€ from the gift shop.

What a wonderful church! a must do in Nuremberg, not to mention that it's free but it is also a fabulous work of arquitecture in reverence to Faith. Considering that it was very much damaged in the aftermath of WWII heavy bombardment it is now restored to a point that you do not notice that it was so severely damaged.... More

By chance, there was a free, midday, 40-minute organ concert during my visit to Nuremberg. Marvellous! I'm not sure that I might have seen its wonderful, light, Gothic interior otherwise, as it seems not to be open much at other times. Read the outside notice boards for important info such as this.

Absolutely beautiful. I would say the second most beautiful church in Europe, after Seville Cathedral. The underground stops right outside it so use this stop to see the ancient city and you know you won't miss standing in awe of it!

Pretty church to stop in. Amazing to see the total destruction that happened during the war and then to be able to rebuild it to its current state is amazing.

The church just kind of jumps out at you, while walking through the town. It's right in the middle of the shopping area, so we didn't even notice it until it was literally right in our face. What a great surprise. The city seemed to have lots of not-so-little surprises as you walk around. But, this was certainly probably one... More

If you don't tire of visiting churches in Germany, go into this one too. For us it was a wonder ful landmark for the Ubahn station nearest our hotel.

Found it different being Lutheran. Nice stained glass windows. A bit more austere than catholic churches.
