“Stunning old church”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Again, I'm fascinated by German churches and this one is worth a visit. While you Ste walking though the old town, have a look at this church.

“Lovely medieval church”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Like St. Lorenz, this church passed into Lutheran hands during the Reformation. Like St. Lorenz, too, it was destroyed by military action in the spring of 1945, but was restored before 1960. At present, however, further work is taking place, which limits one's appreciation somewhat. Among the treasures is the ornate burial monument of St. Sebaldus. Well worth visiting, and more than worth the euro that is asked to help maintain the church.

“Make time for a visit”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

While this church may lack the flash of other churches in the area, it has its own unique beauty and charm. Much of that has to do with its history, particularly concerning it's post WWII rebuilding. Definitely worth seeing.

“the best church in Nuremberg”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

This church has nothing to envy with the most famous Frauenkirche (with the carousel arìt noon). In the church you can also listen to concerts.

“Medevil Church that Towers the Community Around It”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Centrally located and right off the center of the market place, this church towers over all buildings in the immediate area. Very Gothic, Medieval feel with amazing details on the outside of the church. It is a must see attraction when visiting Nuremberg.
