St. Sebaldus Church, Nuremberg

Church · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
The location of St. Sebaldus Church in front of the Albrecht-Dürer-Platz is evidence of its central role in city's culture. One of the oldest and most important houses of worship in the region, it takes its name from Sebaldus, a hermit and missionary from the eighth century. The structure was originally a Romanesque basilica, but in the ensuing centuries, the aisles have been made wider and the steeples higher. Much of what you see inside was restored after World War II's bombing damage. However, the stained glass windows, the Shrine of St. Sebaldus, and the organs survived, so you can still enjoy the epic reverberation of the organ's 15th-century pipes.

  • Nice church to walk a bit around. The history of this church is special. We spend short time inside (and lightrd a candle as we do in almost every city we visit. Just a matter of tradition).  more »
  • This church is dedicated to the Patron Saint of Nuremberg and is worth visiting. It has some beautiful stained glass inside.  more »
