Frauenkirche Nürnberg, Nuremberg

4.6
#5 of 15 in Historic Sites in Nuremberg
Erected on the eastern side of the city's main market, Frauenkirche Nürnberg was constructed in the 14th century, and massive restoration projects inside the cathedral have given the Middle Age sculptures new life. One of these works of art is the Tucher Altar, crafted in 1440. An eye-catching feature of the church is the Männleinlaufen, a mechanical clock that commemorates the 14th century Golden Bull. Charles IV, the Holy Roman Emperor, is pictured on the clock with his prince-electors surrounding him.

Where to stay in Nuremberg

The Altstadt and the Egidienviertel districts, the city's historical sections, provide an array of guesthouses and hotels. An alternative is the Gostenhof area, a suburban region with a selection of tourist sites. If you stay in Gostenhof, however, you need to take public transportation to the city center. For local flair, consider staying in the Knoblauchsland district near the Hauptmarkt. Avoid the Südstadt district near the train station, which is mainly residential and doesn't offer many entertainment options or access to sites.
