This church houses the relics and is dedicated to the patron saint of Nurnberg. The silver coffin that hold the remain of Sebald is beautiful and is given a place of honor. The church is also home to some lovely altar pieces that are spread about. The exterior also has some interesting inscribed stones. Hard to miss this beauty.

Located just off the Hauptmarkt, it is hard to miss the twin Gothic towers which beckon you to visit. The church is an imposing 13th century structure that has been painstakingly restored to its original stature by superb craftsmen. The interior contains the tomb of St. Sebaldus, as well as many beautiful statues and other impressive works. Stop by for... More

I love this church, pure gothic, amazingly restored after the bombings. It has great atmosphere, puts you back into medieval times! Also in a beautiful area, just off the northwest corner of the Main Market.

Yes, another church. But still, it's one of the very nice ones. Fascinating how the details inside are all still very vivid, original and old.

This structure was bombed many times during WWII and also caught fire! Renovations took 12 yrs to restore some of the original structure! It's worth seeing the architecture, works of art and paintings to immerse yourself in the beauty and spirit of the church itself! Many feel they've left a piece of them behind!!

This is an interesting and awe inspiring church which should have a calm and contemplative atmosphere. My visit was spoiled by a group of 3 young people - probably around 20 years of age - who wandered round with their Starbucks coffee cups stopping only to try to take pictures of themselves drinking coffee.

A massive structure that has undergone a rough life, St. Sebaldus has been carefully and lovingly restored.

They had numerous before & after photos posted on columns inside the church, showing how it looked after the bombing in January 1945. The restoration is absolutely astonishing!
