Jakobskirche dates back to 1209 and has a beautiful alter. We were fortunate to attend Christmas Eve Service here. The congregation was very welcoming.

The exterior and interior of this church are very simple and plain, but the inside has been decorated with old tombstones and some old art work. I can only assume that it was destroyed during WWII and rebuilt.

A beautiful stone building placed in Jakobsplatz.Not very big and not out of common.There are at least three more impressive churches in Nuremberg,St Sebaldus,St Lorenz and Frauenkirche.But this one worth a short visit. Across the street is another interesting church,Elisabethkirche.
