Church of the Holy Cross, Dresden

Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web
Built in the early 12th century, Church of the Holy Cross was dedicated to the Holy Cross on June 10, 1388, and is the largest church in Saxony. During World War II, the church was heavily bombed, and though it has since been rebuilt, it has not been fully restored. Nevertheless, you can visit the cavernous interior of the church, somewhat austere in its simplicity, and see the many photos depicting the destruction of the church and its surroundings during the war. If you have the chance, come on a Saturday to hear the famous boys' choir preform, or check online for a schedule of organ concerts. Plan to visit Church of the Holy Cross and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Dresden attractions using our Dresden vacation builder.

  • Impressive as the place was all but destroyed in the war and now is completely reassembled, leaving tourists out of breath. Recommend going during Christmas!
