    The Frauenkirche is located right in the heart of Nuremberg's old town, on the main market. Every day at 12:00 o'clock "Männleinlaufen" is always observed, by a more or less large, crowd of spectators. This is a "play" of the art clock by Jörg Heuss (created 1506-09) on the gable of the Michael choir. In memory of the decree of the Golden Bull in 1356, the seven electors pay homage to Emperor Charles IV. The ball above the clock also indicates the phases of the moon.
    During the Christmas season, always on the Friday before the first Advent, the Nuremberg Christ Child speaks her prologue on the gallery of the Frauenkirche, thus opening the world-famous Nuremberg Christmas Market.

    The Roman Catholic parish church "Our Lady" (Frauenkirche) is a striking building directly on the main market in Nuremberg. A visit to the interior is also highly recommended.

    Beautiful church on the main market in Nuremberg. The Christkindl speaks from the balcony on the opening day of the Christmas market.

    The Frauenkirche, today the Roman Catholic parish church of Our Lady, is one of the most important churches in Nuremberg on the east side of the main market.
    It was built at the instigation of Emperor Karl in the Parlerzeit from 1352 to 1362 as a hall church with three by three bays; On the west side, facing the market, there is a vestibule, in the east a two-bay choir with a 5/8 end adjoins the width of the central nave.
    The western gable with a tracery tabernacle for the so-called “Männleinlauf” from 1509, which is still in operation, was designed by Adam Kraft.
