#Church, #Landmark, #Must See
Experience the fruits of postwar reconstruction at Frauenkirche. Although destroyed by Allied bombing in World War II, the rebuilt church recreates the original structure's imposing 18th-century Baroque architecture. Enter to see the grand hall, and head up to the dome (one of Europe's largest) for fantastic views and photo ops of the city. Before your trip to Dresden, make sure to check the cathedral’s website as they frequently hold concerts. Put Frauenkirche into our Dresden route builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • From the outside of a very beautiful church. Inside, the great organ in the eye is a directly. A statue of Martin Luther stands before the Church of our Lady.

  • The back rack building Frauenkirch is an absolute highlight for sightseeing in Dresden. We were there mid March when it's ice cold. That's probably why no latency and also no crowds. In the Church, especially the dome and the altar with organ is worth highlighting.

  • This is one of the most impressive buildings I have seen in Europe! After the big cathedral in Berlin... This whole area of Dresden is very nice. There is a strange feeling in the city, a sense of calm and chilled vibes. This part of the city has kept its old roots even with the buildings looking old.
  • The church is a very beautiful example of Protestant sacred architecture, having one of the largest domes in Europe. Built in the 18th century, the church was destroyed in the British/American carpet bombing of Dresden during World War II. The remaining ruins were left for 50 years as a war memorial. The church was rebuilt starting in 1994. The reconstruction of its exterior was completed in 2004, and the interior in 2005.
  • Another Dresden must see. The tower is well worth the ascent as it really is the best view of the city. Very friendly staff with great advice and the leaflet you get is also very nice as it is a panorama with all major points named.
  • We’ve been here during our visit in Dresden’s Christmas markets. It is a really nice church with interesting and sad history. I can recommend the visit to everybody.
  • Beautiful and historic baroque church. It's one of the can't-miss sites if Dresden's old city, rebuilt after the war to its full former glory. The climb to the top is well worth the time.
