Woven in the history. A place trying to show the peace of God but has anything but. We thought it great to have information sheets in different languages. Thank you . The altar is stunning and thoughtful.

We visited a number of Churches during our time in Nuremberg but this was the best. Small in comparison to its contemporaries, but beautiful internally. Free to enter. We lit a memorial candle here.

I thought that this was the best church to go and see in Nuremberg. The interior was very grand and the stone on the front is beautiful.

A major medieval church full of original artworks -- monuments, glass, some wall painting, St Sebald's shrine, altarpieces etc. Eastern parts in need of some TLC -- clearly still not fully recovered from the war. Outside also pays attention.

Walked in expecting to see another HUGE church and found the interior much smaller than expected. A string orchestra was performing and it was lovely!

When we first tried to enter St. Sebaldus Church (St. Sebald, Sebalduskirche), a service was in progress and we did not want to disturb those worshiping, So we left and returned a couple of hours later to access this medieval church. Along with Frauenkirche and...More

In general, the church is a pretty typical German church on a monumental scale. What sets it apart is the video that illustrates the stages of its construction (and reconstruction).
