The outside doesn't look that spectacular aside from the dome on the top. There is a door to go inside, which is not that obvious. Once inside the interior is in different coloured marble and is worth seeing.

From the exterior I expected more of the same... but found a cozy and very pretty smaller church... too big to be a chapel, but it was an intimate church. Would have enjoyed attending a service there!

This church looks more like a government building than a place of worship and inside the area to sit is very compact and centralized. It has a modern feel though it is decorated with more medieval/renaissance art. The statues of the 12 apostles in the...More

An interesting church but not as beautiful as many in Nuremberg. Very imposing exterior with interesting domed ceiling.

Very relaxing place. Yes, the details and design all beautiful. What struck us most is the calmness, and how the place relaxed us.
