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

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.
