Ruin of St Catherine’s Church

Access via Peter-Vischer-Straße

For decades this has been one of the stages for the annual world music festival “Bardentreffen”, and for many years one of the main venues for “Summer in Nuremberg” (St Catherine’s Open Air).Both the convent and St Catherine’s Church were built in 1293. Convent and church burnt down completely after a WW II air raid. In the 1960s and 1970s, the church’s curtain walls were secured, but the church was never reconstructed (no ceiling!).
