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

(4.6/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • 1225, laid down, in 1273 completion. Then added two spires and the corridor, has been completed in 1483. Many works of art inside the temple, with a halo of the Sun "Crown Madonna" sculpture is particularly great. 1513 三幅 Kulmbach made altarpieces are good altarpiece was. Madonna and child with St. Barbara and and St. Catherine central portion was sold postcards. Maestro by 1440 三幅 altar picture of the color is crisp, well, there were postcards of this also.

  • Should you have ever seen from the inside. It is even more interesting if you previously with several guides. In particular it through the art bunker. Otherwise too much to recommend: 'Casemates and hole water pipe' "Historic rock course" "Art bunker" the issues mesh all wonderful and are very informative.

  • The Church has a long history since the middle ages. Strong religious beliefs are seen in the design of gray buildings and more can be. End of the building especially good.

  • 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.
