It is a great church that was severely damaged during the WW2. The photos inside the church show the aftermath of the bombings. It houses a coffin with the relics of St. Sebaldus.

The architecture was great and worth seeing. Inside the church was very cold as they do not heat their churches.

St. Sebaldus is a cool church with a cool history. The towers remained standing through the devastating bombings of WWII. There are photos throughout the church showing the ruins of everything around and the rebuilding.
We somehow missed the tower visit area but saw the people on top of a tower while we were up on the castle looking down over the city. The view from the Sebaldus towers must be amazing. and especially of the Weinachtsmarkt!
Definitely worth checking out!

This is the oldest of Nuremberg's churches--dating from 1230. The church features beautiful carvings and houses a silver coffin from 1397 (with the relics of St. Sebadus). The various columns have photos of the destruction of the church in the WW2 bombing raids along with parts of a poem about the horror and destruction of the building. To think that the present building rose from the ashes of destruction depicted in the photos is absolutely stunning. Don't miss this.

Unbelievable to see the survival of buildings such as this when so much of the country was destroyed. Doing a great job on reconstruction. Beautiful building. Lots of stained glass
