When you are in the city it is just one of those places you have to visit. It doesn't matter if you are religious, neither does it matter if you enjoy old or new building, you just have to see this place in all it glory

I've visited St. Lorenz Kirche many times and always find it to be a powerful experience. It is located in the centre of busy,cosmopolitan Nuremburg but to step inside is to shed centuries. Architecturally, it is amazing. The accoustics are wonderful. On my most recent visit, blue-jeaned musicians from a nearby university music program were playing. The strings at one... More

Definitely worth seeing if you are in Nuremberg, especially the huge "Engelsgruss" (Angelus) above the altar. One of the prime sites to see in Nuremberg.

Be sure not to miss this stunning beauty. If the outside attracts you the inside will absolutely captivate you. It is difficult to leave once there for fear of not taking the beauty with you. I was in awe.

I could have spent all day here, beautiful and amazing!!!! While there, a volunteer approached me and gave me information about the church and the history of some of the art and statues. The Epitaphs were spectacular!
