You will see this church, this is in the middle of Konigstrasse, the main road. Very beautiful... Go and take pictures without flash.
We usually find time to visit this church when we are in the area. It has great views if you have the chance to go up to the balcony, however it is not always open. The church in itself is worth a visit!!!
very powerful experience to see this church. The photo display from pre and post war is gripping. An amazing sense of peace and beauty inside.
The church has been rebuilt because of bomb damage in the war. They've done a good job, and at different points there are pictures of what it looked like in 1945, so you can see how much had to be done. An interesting visit.
St.Sebaldus was an 8th c. hermit, missonary and is the patron saint of Nuremberg. No wonder, the church dedicated to him, is full of treasures, despite a Protestant one. A medieval church built from 1215 - 1275, in front of the Rathaus (Town Hall).It appeared as a late-Romanesque pillared basilica with 2 choirs. In 1309 the side aisles were widened in the Gothic style.The 2 towers were added in 15th c. and the building was remodelled to Baroque style in the 17th c. Despite the heavy damage during WWII, it still contains significant treasures. The reliquary shrine of St.Sebaldus (1397 by Peter Vischer the elder and his two sons) where the bones of the Saint are kept in a silver casket. The shrine has a bronze canopy and is supported by 12 snails with different shells, instead of feet. At one corner of the shrine you may notice the sculptor himself as a bearded man with leather apron and a chisel in his hands. There was a very precious old organ before the WWII but it was destroyed and the new one with 4 manuals was installed in 1975 by Peter K?ln. The church has several altars as Peter's altar, Halleraltar, etc, a Crucifixion group and a relief by the famous Veit Stoss, 2 works by Adam Kraft inside and outside the church, many colourful statues of saints like Madonna in an aureole, a wonderful sacrament's alcove and a Memory panel with an expressive Christ's face. It's Nuremberg's most important Protestant church.
St. Sbaldus is an unmissable sight. The details in it's architecture is amazing. The golden clock, the statues on every pillar, the Windows, doors, arcs are beautiful pieces of art. You've got to see it!
Albrecht Durer's church, great historical interest, and located very close to Durer's original house in Nuremberg.
Amazing to see the post WW2 picture of the church inside as it shows how much work went in to restoring it. Nice stonework, worth spending about 20 minutes looking through it.
If you are in old town of Nuremberg, then it will be very easy to identify this church.It is relatively massive and guess what... it is just renovated after WW 2.Inside you can see the trace of new renovation in 20th century and after looking at the destruction that happen in WW 2, it is quite amazing actually that the city can return the shape of the church to this stage.
Beautiful old church within the Aldstat. I am amazed at the size of these churches. I liked the fact that it was easily accessible and easy to get to.
