This is a magnificent church easily accessible on any walkabout in Old Town Nuremberg. It is stately looking from the street and has a glorious interior.

A very pretty place and interesting places to stop by. The church and castle were worth seeing- castle is up a slight hill but all walkable areas.
It did rain on my visit day but still
A manged to have a nice afternoon.
I took a guided day trip from Munich but unless you really want a guided tour it is something you can do independently.
Bit your train tickets in advance and most of the area is walkable and it will make a pleasant day out of city of Munich- all near Nuremberg station and will be cheaper than the guided tour from Munich.

This Gothic basilica was built about 1270-1350 and the sanctuary later 1439-1477. It’s an impressive church both outside and inside. The ornamental gate is very nice with its statues. There’s an unusual decoration: a nice group of statues (Annunciation) hangs from the ceiling of the temple. It’s stunning. I liked the fantastic stained glass windows from 1493-95. I think it’s a must-see attraction. We visited it twice: on our first and last day in the city.

It never stops amazing me how tall the German churches are. This one is no exception and it has some beautiful art inside.

This lovely church sits downtown in central Nuremberg. The interior is filled with important artwork, each piece worth examining on its own merits. Hanging over the altar is the beautiful wood carving of the Annunciation by Veit Stoss--one of his masterpieces. Another work of interest is the gigantic house of sacraments, held up by a picture of the artist, Adam Kraft, who is crouching below the marble structure. Doubtless you will find other marvels to behold.

The church itself is quite huge from the outside and when you look close you'll find amazing attention to details that has been carved on it's walls.

A fine Gothic cathedral. While it's interior might offer nothing particularly unusual if you've visited your fair share of these behemoths, the exterior is outstanding with two matching spires and a lovely rose window dominating the walk up the main shopping street. One of two superb churches in the old part of Nuremberg.

This church was very impressive for the the outside design and architecture. We greatly admired the mixed design of the towers and the stories from our tour guide.

St. Lorenz (St. Lawrence) is a medieval church and is an imposing structure in Nurenberg.

This church was damaged during the Second World War.

The building was completed in 1477 so has significant historical significance for the city.

The area around St. Lorenz provides you with a lot of photo opportunities. Plus it is close to the inner city shopping area
