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.

The church has lots of history and was very interesting to see. I would recommend it. We did not have a guide during our visit.

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.

I thought that this was the best church to go and see in Nuremberg. The interior was very grand and the stone on the front is beautiful.

A major medieval church full of original artworks -- monuments, glass, some wall painting, St Sebald's shrine, altarpieces etc. Eastern parts in need of some TLC -- clearly still not fully recovered from the war. Outside also pays attention.

St. Sebaldus is one of two major churches in Old Town Nuremburg. This church is closer to the castle and a few blocks north of the Hauptmarkt along the pedestrian zone. Begun in 1225, this church is interesting because it comprises both gothic and Romanesque...More
