The Lorenzkirche is one of the most beautiful Gothic Churches in Europe. See inside the "Englischer Gruß" , a masterpiece of the middle age art.

We did not visit the interior of the church bit definitely a central monument in the old city of Nuremberg. Clean from outside and you can find some kiosks or entertainment people nearby.

Wonderful architecture from the creator of this church which separates the city from other places in Germany. Very pleasant place where you can feel peace and positive vibrations. 2€ is requested as entry fee but no one demands it. Worth to visit this place

Beautiful architecture. The church was begun in the 1400's and restored after extensive damage in WW II. There are many spendid altars and stained glass windows to see. A must see while in Nurnberg.

Awesome architecture and church. Has been in existence from 1400s became Lutheran in 1525. Small entrance fee to help pay for the upkeep - 5 euros for a family, 2 Euros per adult. Person there to answer questions and a small gift shop. Must see...More

Another beautiful church in Nuremberg. On my way back to the train station I stopped by to have a look. I’m so amazed at the workmanship of these German churches. It’s amazing they were build hundreds and hundreds of years ago. I find a sense...More

Hi! I guess the other responses bear even more than I had to say. They're kinda complete.
