It is an old gothic church in the center of city and the surrounding are is also quite nice. This is one of the typical church in German style. Inside is common like others but you certainly should see the architectural construction.

A medieval church with an impressive architecture. It was severely damaged during the WWII but it was restored almost to its original status afterwards. You will appreciate the great artwork in the stained glass windows, the ceiling and the sculptures .

I am not one to visit church's normally but this place is certainly worth a drop in, you are free to walk around and take in the great artwork and architecture of the building and don't forget to look up the ceiling is amazing. The stain glass windows are pretty impressive too

The St. Lorenz Cathedral is situated in the Center of town. It is famous for ist glass Windows. The paintings give the bist shine, when the sun is shining outside. Also the wooden sculpture, called Englischer Gruss ( the angel is giving Maria the Information that she will give birth to Jesus) is worldwide famous too

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.
