“the patron saint of Nuremberg and his church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

I would advise that anyone wishing to visit the main church of Nuremberg to first find out who St. Sebald was -- I've read 2 stories. That he founded the city around 1040, and that he was a holy hermit living nearby. At any rate, this is a lovely Gothic church and the saint's bones are in a silver cask in the center of the church.

Like most of the churches here it suffered much damage during the war and has not been fully restored. Needs work but has a fine altal piece.
