“Nice big Nurnberg Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

I am pretty sure there is an image of Santa Claus in one of the stain glass windows, but it was dark when we visited so it was hard to tell! Anyway, it's a great big traditional German Cathedral and worth a visit just to look up and soak in the middle age engineering that went into it!

“A Real Beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

We have been in many Gothic churches during our travels, but this one has such soaring elegant architecture we were left breathless. Light pours in from the many windows so, in spite of it`s size, St. Lorenz seems
almost weightless. Suspended from the ceiling as one approaches the alter is a huge but delicate looking ,for want of a better word, sculpture
of the Annunciation. It looks as if it was floating in space.

“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

We happened in on a practice session of the St. Lorenz church choir and orchestra while visiting Nuremberg. They were doing a Verdi concert that evening. IT WAS MAGNIFICENT listening to those voices and that orchestra reverberate in the church. Used Rick Steve's commentary as we walked around in the church looking at the altar, columns, art, etc. Just spending 30 minutes there was so uplifting!

“Very interesting church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

I loved the wall that held the candles that you light. It was a modern piece of art in a very old church but fit. Interesting to see the pictures of what was left after the WW!! bombings.
