St Lorenz Church is a medieval church of the former imperial city of Nuremberg dedicated to Saint Lawrence. It is 15th century building of Gothic architecture located in the heart of the old city. It is dominated by two towers. Definitely worth a visit by every visitor to the city.

This is a huge, beautiful gothic medieval church, just off the main square, right next to Lorenzkirche U-bahn station, logically enough!
