This lovely church was nearly destroyed by the bombing in the second World War.
This church overlooks the market square in Nurnberg, it has stain glass windows & Gothic Arches. At 12 noon a mechanical parade is performed in the clock tower, inside is a little plain but still worth the visit.

The thing that struck me about Frauenkirche was how light and open the church felt. Historically, gothic architecture always appears heavy and weighty...but with the clear windows, Frauenkirche really does "shine". It's "simple" in comparison to some other gothic churches, but the artwork above the altar and around the naive add a wonderful simple, elegant touch. Definitely worth a quick pop in to view.

Whilst having some free time on our river cruise with Uniworld we visited Nuremberg town.

There was a market on and on the same square is Frauenkirche. It stands on the eastern side of this market and is an example of Gothic architecture.

This is a Roman Catholic parish church of Our Lady.

It was built between 1352 to 1362.

This has been previously damaged diring the war and rebuilt during 1900's.

As its in town square and conveniently located its well worth visiting.

This was on our walking tour through old town. It is right on a large square and is an impressive clock. Unfortunately for some reason the moveable parts did not move at noon like they were supposed to. Good places to sit and get something to eat or drink around the square.

The Frauenkirche church is a beautiful place, in a fun area of old town. There are many interesting facts that we learned about this church. There is a large plaza outside and the inside of the church is very beautiful. I would say that if you get the chance, go to this area to visit!

A fine brick gothic cathedral watching over the main market square of the city. While the front facade is realtively unadorned it has two notable features: the balcony where the Christmas market is apparently declared open each year and the fine mechanical clock. Try and be there at midday to hear it. Not as grandiose as similar mechanisms in Munich and Prague but definitely fun.

Well, sadly this church was closed when we were in Nuremberg. We did get to walk around outside but no interior views.
We, of course, could see the clock but it didn't seem to be working either. Good brick Gothic design.

Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady) is a 14th-century Gothic church located at Hauptmarkt in the city centre of Nuremburg. It is open from 9am to 6pm daily. This is one of the nice church visits you can make with sightseeing around the city.

The exterior is enjoyable to view. The facade includes a gable with small spires and other Gothic features. It includes the famous Männleinlaufen, a mechanical clock that performs at noon each day commemorating the Golden Bull of 1356.

Inside the church, you will find more traditional Gothic features including a narrow nave, vaulted ceiling, attractive stained glass windows, lots of sculptures and some artworks that are enjoyable to view.

In the end, smaller in scale and size to the landmark St. Sebald and St. Lorenz churches, Frauenkirche was probably our third favourite to visit during this trip to Nuremburg. There is enough to see here for 15-20 minutes of impressive sightseeing. Would definitely make time for this attraction if you enjoy historic church visits during your travels.

It's a nice and not very large church in which separation between the aisles and the central nave is nearly imperceptible. Only four cylindrical columns separatee the three parts of the interior. The stained glas windows are artistically elaborated and they usually let an intense light penetrate into the church. All that as well as the tasteful fashion of the inner decoration fills the inside with a gay atmosphere.
In the outside, the gable adorned with niches and pinacles, attributable to A. Kraft, top the façade. The clock shows a parade of seven princes-electors in front of the emperor. It's worth beeing there at noon to see how they move.
This church stands on one side of a square where there is a market in which very interesting goods can be purchased. It's higly advisable to go there at Crhistmas time since then the market is full of life and in the evening very bright and showy
