  • This Gothic styled Church is dedicated to St. Lawrence. Beautiful architecture and worth visiting when in the old town.  more »
  • Finally had the chance of visiting inside. Huge church. Beautiful walls and stained glass as well. Going over huge renovation works  more »
  • An amazing building with beautiful windows, an extremely located organ and Tower tours on Saturdays. Info at the entrance with helpful employees. Find this place for some moments of bliss. You will love it
  • A wonderfully gorgeous piece of history and architecture. One thing I certainly admire about Germany is the beautiful historical architecture, and there's definitely no shortage of that. I definitely recommend visiting Nürnberg and walking the streets and checking out the churches and the abundance of beautiful architecture.
