The Church of Our Lady in Nuremberg was completed in 1362. Due to the heavy bombing suffered in Nuremberg during World War II, it was largely destroyed and was rebuilt in 1953.

In its spectacular Gothic façade, we have the Leash walking the mechanical clock that depicts the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles IV, seated, surrounded by musicians, with the prince electors dancing around him, celebrating the imperial decree entitled Golden Bull, of 1356.

In addition to the rich detail of the sculptures on the facade, the interior of the church leaves nothing to be desired, as it houses a collection of numerous works of art from the Middle Ages.

The imperial castle of Nuremberg dates back to the beginning of the 12th century, and is one of the symbols of the power of the Holy Roman Empire, remaining to this day crowning Nuremberg from the top of the city. The medieval complex spanned centuries, hosted several kings and emperors, and today is open for visitors, with permanent exhibitions.
