  • An amazing building with beautiful windows, an extremely located organ and Tower tours on Saturdays. Info at the entrance with helpful employees. Find this place for some moments of bliss. You will love it
  • A wonderfully gorgeous piece of history and architecture. One thing I certainly admire about Germany is the beautiful historical architecture, and there's definitely no shortage of that. I definitely recommend visiting Nürnberg and walking the streets and checking out the churches and the abundance of beautiful architecture.
  • Really beautiful church. One of the most beautiful churches in Europe. Well worth visiting!
  • Excellent European Architecture Old painting and sculptures No words to explain this place.
  • Nuremberg downtown. A lot of shops and restaurants, bars, banks in the area about 5min walk to train stations. Nice location
