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

(500+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Church
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.

  • Beautiful church, but the backside of it seems a bit grim other than the lovely restaurant.
  • This Evangelich Church is the symbol of the city and need to be visit. Inside you can find guide in the most common european leanguage and thi could help tourist in understanding the place richness.
  • A very pretty church. The murals, paintings, and stained glass is worth the visit.
  • 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.
