St. Elisabeth Church is unique among the other two gothic churches (St. Lorenz and St. Sebald) in Nuremberg. While not as elaborately detailed as St. Lorenz or St. Sebald, St. Elisabeth provides a glimpse into the architecture of the 17 and early 1800's. It's present...More

Is this really a church? From the outside it looks like a government building or a Masonic Hall. Classical architecture which disguises the true building and its usage. The church is very small in snide and almost circular in shape, with the pews arranged in...More

If you look at this structure you may mistake it for something other than a church. It is definitely a different look for a church on the outside - nothing super special - but the interior makes up for it. The church is beautiful on...More

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.

As I have said before. Churches gets full points always. You just can not rate this kind of hard work of architect and purpose of this building. This church is with open door, but iron gates are stopping to go in.

Really worth the visit. Interesting architecture and the area is easy to acess, once it is in the altstadt. In july, the wine fest happens in front of this church.

I go there when I really need some quiet time in the city center - to fill up my empty batteries and want to have silence. Go there in the first row just beneath the dome and meditate. Usually not so many people go in...More
