  • Most representative example of Baroque in Nuremberg, is located in a modern area of the city. Pleasant a declining towards the central square. The Interior is modern, with unusual shapes.

  • The Church of Sant'Egidio is the only remaining Baroque building in Nuremberg. The first church building was built in the 1120/1130 on the site of the second Royal Court North of Nuremberg. The Royal courts administered real estate, agriculture and forestry, then had the status of Royal Church. The Abbey was acquired by the Benedictines and later was partially rebuilt and renovated. In 1696, a fire destroyed the monastery and Church. It was then rebuilt in Baroque style but was badly damaged during the second world war in an airstrike. Rebuilt between 1946 and 1959, has a long tradition of fine music. Characterized by a simple environment is worth a short visit.

  • The Church of Saint Egidio is a unique example of Baroque style church that remains in Nuremberg. Back to the Scottish monastery built in 1140, which in turn was built on the location of the Royal Court in prehistoric times of the city. The current church was built between 1711 and 1718. The Romanesque chapel of the Eucharist, of the 12th century, is the oldest reminiscent of religious construction of the city. Still the chapel of St. Wolfgang, in late Gothic style, and the 1345 Tetzel Chapel are preserved. During advent and Christmas, there is exhibition of Nativity scenes.
