A remarkable church in the town square. The renovations in the city are remarkable and this church is no exception.

A medium church with nice ceilings and stained glass vitrals. Partly rebuild after WW2, outside you can see the bullet marks on the old walls.

As any gothic cathedrals, though its lutheran now, its simple and full of details, that force your eyes to run for each. Of course, the main is St Sebaldus grave, but don't miss any hidden corner - there are a lot of things that brings you in far past, and breath by times which even hard to imagine. Despite its...

A stunning church that really takes your breath away when you go inside. Well presented for visitors so you find out a lot about the history of the church. The pictures and writing about the destruction of the church and area during WW2 were really eye-opening.

Be prepared to meet history there - also its grim parts. It's very big and beautiful, yet there was not too many people there. Just walk silently, relax and think of many deeds and evils of humanity.

A beautiful church with nice "bratwursthausel" in the surrounding squares. Some signs in german and english emotionally portray the churches history and there are some fascinating wooden angels inside the church.

I wandered in here to seek cool shelter during last week's heat wave. There is an excellent historic photo display of how the church was damaged during WW II, and its restoration process. There were also photos of 1930's Nazi's presence & rally in the city, as Hitler felt the city's old architecture made it the "most German" of cities.... More
