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 two apses and the beautiful portals are just the shell of one of the most beautiful churches of Germany. To grasp especially the stained glass (from ' 300 to 500) and the tomb of St. Sebaldus Church, overflowing with figures. Without forgetting the remains of frescoes and the epitaphs of nobility that adorn the walls of the choir.

  • 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.
  • Nice old church, if not a bit grim inside compared to many others.
  • Sehenswertes Kunstwerk und beeindruckende Kirche. Sehr hilfsbereiter und aufgeschlossener Mesner!
  • Madness! I love churches, this one is a dream. I can recommend a visit to any tourist.
