The church is under construction..but it was a treat to hear a group singing near the altar. The organ is also under construction as well. I would love to go back to see it again when it's complete.

A beautiful church, with a great history. The images of this churches history from it's beginning, the WWII bombings and it's rebuilding are impressive. But nothing was more touching than the images of the peace march organised in December, 1992, showing 100,000 people with candles, uniting for the end of war

It's nice. They show the pictures of the damage from WWII. They've rebuilt. It's interesting, but when you've looked at so many churches, they start looking the same. They are all pretty impressive.

One of the best churches I visited. Its location is very central and near to the shopping area. Architecture is really amazing. A must visit when in Nuremberg.

Some poignant posters describing the effects of the war damage. It demonstrates the hope that people carry with them in the face of adversity

I loved this church, but I am still to work out why. Yes there is nothing 'special' about it except maybe the architecture and inside it is a church. I think it was worth a visit but maybe I was taken by Nuremberg itself and caught up with the total history of the city.

I feel a bit bad giving only three stars but there is nothing about this that wows - as a tourist and as a tourist attraction. Outside is pleasant but it's a church when all said and done, which in some eyes is what it is meant to be. As a place of worship and serenity, five stars no problem.... More

Have some respect and visit a truly wonderful house of God. Fantastic history is told in this must see attraction here in the center of the old town. Have some respect and quietly visit and see the inside of this magnificent place.

Johann Pachelbel, the composer of Canon in D major, was born in Nuremberg and began his music education / career as a youth at this church. After achieving fame in Vienna, he chose to return to Nuremberg to be an organist at St. Sebaldus Church again, despite more prestigious job offers as far as from England. I found this out... More

Churches / cathedrals are the historical buildings of the past. Very peaceful inside. Lots to contemplate.
