Like many churches in Europe it's much nicer from the outside than the inside. It is what it looks like and very easy to see walking around the old town.

The first church in Germany that I've experienced. I'm impressed by the harmony which the German play. I love the way they bring music to church, the spirit.

Nice to watch the 12 midday animation of the figures. Quite a tourist attraction with people waiting expectantly in the square. Intriguing to see the bell being rung and the figures moving round and facing the King before advancing.

This church is definatly worth looking at. It's not to big but there are many features and details inside and out to check out. When stepping inside on the right side of the entrance you will find information cards in several languages telling the church history.

It is reognizable for its unusual single tower fronted by the gilt clock which displays the famous dancing figures (Glockenspiel) every day at noon. Get there early if you want to see the performance, as the square fills to capacity for the sight. Both inside and out the church is a... More

This is a beautiful church in the middle of Nuremberg, take a close look to the details and different angles it has so you really enjoy it. At dusk when the sun hits its walls it shines like gold.

This building is worth a close up look. Has lots of details on it. It is amazing to see all that work that has gone into it...never did get to see the inside, but can imagine that is beautiful too!
