Extraordinary and typical Deutsch church

Very big and beautiful church in the heart of Altstad. The church is good starting point when you are planning your trip to Nuremberg.

Toured this lovely church with all it's incredible paintings and statues. It needs some TLC but it is definitely worth visiting.

The church located in the heart of the old town area. It's overlooking a small plaza where there was a Christmas market. The Christmas market was small but there was lots of street food and gift shops stretching to the streets around the plaza. It worth visiting.

As with all of the churches in Nuremberg, this is worth your time to tour the church. Just looking at the architecture and knowing the history of Germany, it is amazing how the churches have been rebuilt. Definitely purchase the tour book before walking around the chruch - it will help you since there are no guided tours.

A magnificent church, splendidly decorated for Christmas. Very welcoming and warm - a rarity for German churches in winter

We visited in December so it was not very crowded inside. Good amount of original pieces and artwork still in the church. Free and worth the time.

Historically the best monument in Nuremberg. Very old building that you will see on the walk. Stay few minutes inside and enjoy the atmosphere.

Medieval, eery, gothic. Just wonderful the way it overlooks the platz and the market. It's a must - see! So beautiful the window at the front. Looks like a very old rose window.

Even though we had seen a lot of churches and cathedrals already in Germany, the size of this cathedral and the quite austere yet beautiful interior make this worth visiting.
