Right on the central square in Nuremberg and beautiful architecture; even if you're short on time, walk slowly so you can get some great pictures.

Very central setting gives this church an advantage point. The church itself is quite pretty, even if not exceptional. Its main attraction is the clock work mechanism on the front displaying the veneration of the emperor (quite similar to the one in Prague)

We were unimpressed with this small and sort of ordinary church. Even the glockenspeil at noon daily was sort of dull. Very much a " is hat all there is".

Changed over the millennium. Great rebuilding work the cross of 3nails great too. Simple beautiful artwork.... Showing gods creativity. Good displays we were in awe of the space shame about the noise. Blessings on you all 😇 Amazing rebuild well done.

The Frauenkirche is an important building in the old city of Nuremberg. It has a relatively plain interior to my mind. I would not recommend going to see it for its own sake but if you near by it is worth dropping in.

Located right on the main City square (Hauptmarkt). €2 entry fee. Another reconstructed bombed icon. Unfortunately we missed the noontime mechanical clock (Mannleinlaufen) - maybe we will come back to catch it when the Xmas Market is on!

The Frauenkirche is a beautiful structure what overlooks the main market. There was considerably less activity here this Monday evening compared to st Lorenz.

This church is in the middle of the old town close to lots of restaurants and shops, it's worth a quick look inside but it is nothing special.

Beautiful unique church located on the big square. One of the main touristic places in Nuremberg. It's worth to see it outside and inside. Also, near it you can find info center for tourists.
