We walked by this church on our way from Nuremberg Castle to the beautiful fountain. The church is stone with two spires that are capped with oxidized copper. It is an interesting old church, but not as towering as the church in Cologne or as...More

It is impossible not to see St Sebald Cathedral on any orientation tour Nuremberg once the unofficial capital of the Holy Roman Empire and today the economic, social and cultural capital of Franconia. Also see the mighty castle ramparts and the really beautiful old town

2 Euro's per adult (1 Euro/child to get it) ... its on the honor system. Some of the art and architecture of the church is really impressive. Not much to read. Didn't ask if an audio guide is available.

One of a few churches in Nuremberg and well worth visiting. Take half hour or so to appreciate the architecture and the inside too. Very historic church and you can't miss it

Woven in the history. A place trying to show the peace of God but has anything but. We thought it great to have information sheets in different languages. Thank you . The altar is stunning and thoughtful.

We visited a number of Churches during our time in Nuremberg but this was the best. Small in comparison to its contemporaries, but beautiful internally. Free to enter. We lit a memorial candle here.
