St. Sebaldus Church (St. Sebaldus Kirche), Nuremberg
(4.6/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The pillars of the Church have pictures, counting the steps of the Church, which was partially destroyed during the second world war and rebuilt. Also has a golden chest, similar to that found in the Cathedral of Cologne.

  • Yes, another church. But still, it's one of the very nice ones. Fascinating how the details inside are all still very vivid, original and old. 
  • A beautiful church. The problem is that when you've seen many churches in many cities, you get tired a little. Perhaps that is the reason why I take you importance. But for those who have not had that experience, it is advisable to visit it.

  • 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.
