Different time period

Built in a different period, the architecture of this church is very interesting. It's a very appealing piece of work. The inside also has many nice details to see

Nicely maintained old church right on the market square. Solemn and peaceful with the hectic world outside. A refuge.

The main attraction and highlight of Altstadt Platz...the Fraüenhirche is a medieval marvel of Gothic technology. Unique shape and history make for an interesting visit and many photo ops, inside and out.

I just saw the glockenspiel yesterday and our tour guide made sure we were there at noon to see it go into action. It was my first one I've ever seen so, of course, I loved it. We didn't get a chance to go inside the church but the Hauptmarkt in the center of town where the Church of Our... More

Great architecture, a must see place if you are in Nuremberg. It's located in the central market place. We have not entered, but from the outside it's very beautiful. I liked very much how many details the outside facade has.

This church is situated on the edge of the Hauptmarkt. It has a very unusual façade as compared to other Gothic churches. Inside the church is well decorated, but it is the clock on the front of the church that draws most attention - especially at noon when the characters move during the striking of the hour.
