Very beautiful church next the main market in Nuremberg. Amazing gothic architecture style that was built in 13th century. A must see during your visit in Nuremberg.

This church is across the square (Hauptmarkt) from the beautiful fountain. It is not the most beautiful church I have seen, but if you go see the beautiful fountain at least walk by this church.

Very central setting gives this church an advantage point. The church itself is quite pretty, even if not exceptional. Its main attraction is the clock work mechanism on the front displaying the veneration of the emperor (quite similar to the one in Prague)

We were unimpressed with this small and sort of ordinary church. Even the glockenspeil at noon daily was sort of dull. Very much a " is hat all there is".
