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 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.(Source: Wikipedia)

Nice little catholic church in the middle of the market place. Very beautiful church, inviting to linger for silence and prayer. A visit is very worthwhile.

Emperor Charles IV had the Frauenkirche built in the mid-14th century as an imperial court chapel in place of the demolished synagogue in the former Jewish quarter. An attraction is the art clock from 1509 with the so-called "little man running" at noon.

The church was built on the site of the synagogue destroyed in the plague pogrom in 1349. The client was Emperor Charles IV. de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frauenkirche_(N%C3%BCrnberg)
I still don't even find the church that was built on the site of the injustice at that time beautiful. There are many more beautiful churches in Nuremberg.
P.S.: Today, thank God, enlightened people know that the Jews were not to blame for the plague.
