It is a medieval church in Nuremberg. it is one of the most important churches of the city, and also one of the oldest located at the Albrecht-Dürer-Platz. It was completed by 1273-75. The church has an organ by the 14th century. The bluish-green dome is awesome.

i'm not a religious person, but do enjoy art. it's typical for catholic/gothic style churches to be extremly richly decorated - this one has a lot of stained glass windows etc. I was visiting after Metz cathedral so a bit desensitized, but if you like art and/or christian - you'd like it there

A wonderfully preserved and restored church. There is a very peaceful atmosphere, and lots of wonderful stained glass windows. You do not need to pay to get in, but there is a recommended donation box at the front for a few Euros.

The construction began in 1225 and it was fully completed between 1273-75. It has been a Lutheran church since the Reformation. It suffered extensive damage in the WWII but was fully restored in 1957.

St. Sebaldus Church was one of the coolest things I saw when I visited Nuremberg. My wife and I were walking to Nuremberg Castle and decided to donate a couple euro and walk through the church. The coolest thing about the church was that there are photos chronicling the destruction and aftermath of WWII and the subsequent rebuilding effort. We... More

this beautiful gothic church is the backdrop of the Christmas market. I went inside and climbed stairs to view the market from above. (3.80eu) There is a small display, showcasing, the Christkindl Angel costumes. At night, the spotlights towards the church, can obscure your view, but, fun to see, anyway.

This is one of many beautiful churches in Nurnberg. However, inside there are placards showing the destruction of WW II of the church and a poem that continues around the church both in German and English. It offers hope for the future while addressing the tragedy.
