This is a normal Gothic Church, however this was destroyed during WW2 so was rebuilt , this has been a great work, only if you read the history you realize of that since the whole building looks old, in other hand the rebuilding still in progress, so you can find some people working during your visit. Must see!!

Drop in! This once Catholic, now Protestant Church is different from others we’ve seen….Pop in and take a look. We were lucky enough to be there when a children’s choir was signing right out front…..Beautiful!

Although this 14th Century Gothic masterpiece was heavily damaged by bombing during the Second World War, international contributions, particularly from American John Kress, whose ancestor had been a pastor there, funded stabilization of surviving parts and restoration of damaged sections. Despite having been Protestant since the Reformation, the church looked very Catholic, partly because it housed a number of fine Medieval altarpieces from secularized convents and monasteries. The intense colors and background details made these more interesting aesthetically than they were as mere reflections of New Testament stories. The clothing, armor, horse tack, furnishings and other elements reflected the styles of the 15th Century, rather than Roman times.

You are spoiled for choice in Nuremberg for amazing buildings but this one was easily our favourite.

It stands in the centre of town we wouldn’t normally go into such a place but we did on this occasion. It is here you appreciate the full extent of its beauty.

Even though badly damaged during the Second World War by bombers it has been thoughtfully restored and takes your breath away. One can only imagine what it is like when it is full and the service is going on as it was incredible just with a handful of tourists inside.

Definitely one for your list if you visit.

This Gothic styled Church is dedicated to St. Lawrence. Beautiful architecture and worth visiting when in the old town.

Beautiful "must see" Cathedral from the 1400s (completed in 1477). It is stunning with the huge tiered towers, which soar 260 feet into the sky. Also amazing copper spires, and a beautiful rose window and large arched doorway. It's statues and stained glass are amazing. It was damaged heavily in WWII bombing, but our guide told us that the stained glass windows and statues had already been removed , and stored underground in the Nuremberg bunkers. Then the cathedral was rebuilt in the early 1950s. You must see inside.
