About this creation
Hi friends,

the largest Lego-event in Berlin/Germany - the 1000steineland - is finished.

I'd like to present you a little impression of my display. It consist of some german buildings in 30th style. Some of them were presented here before.

The church is new to mocpages. This moc presents the "Frauenkirche" in Nürnberg, Germany.



The procession in front of the church was built by mijasper, a specialist in building scenes and mini-mocs. Thank to him for adding this to my display.

Here are some informion from the internet:

"History of the Frauenkirche

In the Middle Ages, the free imperial city of Nürnberg (Nuremberg) consisted of two parts, one settlement around the Church of St. Sebaldus in the north and one around St. Lorenz in the south. The two sections of the city were separated from each other by the Pegnitz.

In the 12th century, a Jewish quarter with a synagogue developed on this spot, where the Marktplatz (market square) and the Frauenkirche are located today. When the two sections of the city were combined by a common wall, this square became the centre of the city and thus assumed central importance. The city council of Nürnberg wanted to erect a large market place here and requested permission to do so from Charles IV, the monarch at the time.
As the ruler, Charles had a duty to care for the Jewish citizens of his empire. However, because his position as monarch was in question and not at all secure, he caused the cities in his empire to persecute their Jews. He received possession of the Jewish fortunes, and rewarded his followers to ensure their support for himself.
Nürnberg's wish for a central market place came to him during this time. He gave the residents of Nürnberg, who until then had been friendly to the Jews, the permission - if not the order - to drive our their Jews. This led to a terrible pogrom in December, 1349, in which at least 562 Jews were burned to death.

At the same time that he gave permission to tear down the Jewish quarter with the so called Market Document, Charles IV also decreed that a church dedicated to Mary should be erected in place of the Jewish synagogue. This church, founded by Charles IV in the year 1355, served not only a religious but also a political purpose.
In order to be accepted as ruler through the grace of God, it was necessary to be in possession of the so called Crown Jewels. After being elected Holy Roman Emperor in 1356, Charles IV wanted to store these symbols of his power in the centre of the Empire, in Nürnberg. The Crown Jewels (= the Imperial Insignia: the Emperor’s Crown, the Imperial Orb, Cloak, Sceptre and the Imperial Reliquaries: the Holy Lance and the Holy Nail, etc.) were supposed to be stored in the Church of our Lady, which had been founded for that purpose.
This did not happen, most likely due to the Emperor’s security concerns. He had them brought to Karlstein Castle, near Prague. As you will find out later, the layout of the church was nevertheless shaped by the thought of being a holy shrine for the Crown Jewels. This design could not be altered, because the construction of the church was already in full swing.
The Crown Jewels first came to Nürnberg again under Emperor Sigismund in 1423, and were stored in the Church of the Holy Spirit. In 1796 they were brought to Regensburg and then to Vienna, so that Napoleon would not be able to seize them. During World War II, Hitler had them stored in Nürnberg again for a short time. Today they are once again located in the Hofburg (Imperial Palace) in Vienna.

The Frauenkirche became Lutheran in the year 1525, after Nürnberg converted to Protestantism during the Reformation. The church was turned into a preaching church with galleries on the side walls. Nürnberg became part of the new Kingdom of Bavaria in the year 1806, and for the first time in their history the citizens had religious freedom. In 1810 the Catholic congregation purchased the Frauenkirche from the Lutheran. The church had been left bare after the Reformation and secularition, so pieces o art were purchased from torn down monasteries and convents in Nürnberg. The first catholic mass could then be celebrated in this church in 1816.

The Frauenkirche was heavily damaged by the bombing raids of 1945. Only the west facade with the entrance and the choir above it, the old sacristy on the south side, and the northern and southern outer walls stayed intact. The artwork had been stored in the so called art bunker underneath the castle and was therefore undamaged."

Here is a picture of the building today:
