St. Sebaldus Church (St. Sebaldus Kirche), Nuremberg

Religious Site
The location of St. Sebaldus Church (St. Sebaldus Kirche) in front of the Albrecht-Dürer-Platz is evidence of its central role in city's culture. One of the oldest and most important houses of worship in the region, it takes its name from Sebaldus, a hermit and missionary from the eighth century. The structure was originally a Romanesque basilica, but in the ensuing centuries, the aisles have been made wider and the steeples higher. Much of what you see inside was restored after World War II's bombing damage. However, the stained glass windows, the Shrine of St. Sebaldus, and the organs survived, so you can still enjoy the epic reverberation of the organ's 15th-century pipes.

  • Church of St. Sebaldus Church in Gothic style used as a Protestant rite with the Lutheran reformation. It's a bad copy of the Church of san Lorenzo. The towers are tall half of the Catholic Church, but they look the same from the castle through a play of perspectives. Simple interior.

  • A very interesting building built in 1200 and then later in 1400 and rebuilt after the bombing to see carefully

  • St. Sebaldus Church is the oldest Lutheran Church in Nuremberg. Construction began in 1230 's appearance over time fluctuated. The main body was founded in 1441, the Church was seriously damaged during the second world war, photo, as it appeared at that time can be seen inside the Church. But still part of the old Interior was preserved: the shrine of St. Sebaldus, works Shtossa Fight and stained-glass Windows. Be sure to go inside. Please logon to pull on the door.

  • One of the oldest churches in Nuremberg named after St Sebaldus the patron Saint of the city. It is Lutheran since the Reformation. The organ of the church was installed in 1975._
  • If you go in September on a Monday it's very peaceful from the loud outside. Also free suggested 2€ but you don't have to pay.
  • Nice old church, if not a bit grim inside compared to many others.
  • Sehenswertes Kunstwerk und beeindruckende Kirche. Sehr hilfsbereiter und aufgeschlossener Mesner!
  • The Church of Saint Sebald, a patron of the city was destroyed in the second world war to a large extent. The artworks could be saved but and faithfully rebuilt it in the Church. Impressive and beautiful. At the entrance, voluntary "entrance fee" is asked for 2 euro - for the preservation of this beautiful church.
