The church with the most beautiful facade in Nuremberg.Placed in Hauptmarkt,the square that houses the Nuremberg's Christmas Market.Not as big as the other main churches in Nuremberg,St Sebaldus and Lorenzkirche.Austere but beautiful interior.

Built in a different period, the architecture of this church is very interesting. It's a very appealing piece of work. The inside also has many nice details to see

Nicely maintained old church right on the market square. Solemn and peaceful with the hectic world outside. A refuge.

The main attraction and highlight of Altstadt Platz...the Fraüenhirche is a medieval marvel of Gothic technology. Unique shape and history make for an interesting visit and many photo ops, inside and out.

Our first glockenspiel, it took us by surprise but we were situated for a great view. The church is beautiful on the outside-did not get inside as there was a wedding going on.
