Nuremberg is the second largest city in Bavaria and sees itself as a cultural and economic center of Franconia. The panorama was built on the Jacob's Square. Two churches flank the Jacob's Square: The simple Gothic Church of St. James, on the other side the powerful neo-classical building of St. Elizabeth. Both belonged to the possession of the Teutonic Order.
