It was destroyed in the Second World War, but rebuild after. It is a beautiful example of gothic architecture.

We visited this church while exploring the old town of Nuremberg (starting be the train station and finishing at he castle). It's well worth a look inside. Make sure you see the other 2 main churches too.

Beautiful church - it won't take long for you to thoroughly enjoy it. You can easily visit St Sebaldus and the Fauenkirche on the same day and then continue on a lovely walking tour of the altstadt.

Another church in the old town area. Very similar size and architectural to St Lorenz (especially when viewed from the castle) but not quite as nice. I don't think this one has been as sympatheticly restored and I refer the other churches. It is interesting...More
