Lorenzkirche - St. Lawrence Church, Nürnberg: 29 reviews and 77 photos
Lorenzkirche (Saint Lorenz's church) is a Gothic masterpiece with a long history. The first stone was set in 1280, but the aisles and the choir were built in 1439-77 and the two towers later on.
Worth remarking on the façade are the huge rose window, with a diameter of 9 metres, and the portal with statues telling the life of Christ (as in any self-respecting Gothic portal), dating of 1350-60. However, these are copies of the originals that are today located at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum.
Before entering, be aware that, if you want to take pictures, you have to buy a photo-permission ("Foto-Erlebnis") for 5 euro. It is worth paying, since this way you contribute to keep the church in good conditions and can take a lot of pictures (and there certainly is a lot to photograph!).
