#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.

  • What a great Church! Although it was very crowded inside, and many not adhered to the peace bid and photo ban and still get "Chicken Pelle" we have made a tour of the dome in the evening with away from the crowds and I can say - is very much recommended! Guide around the Church by a locals make the visit ' round as she said so beautifully: "The Church of our Lady is the pacemaker of Dresdens-without building Dresden would be not the Dresden today, as we experience it." How true! May they long maintained and many generations enjoy.

  • Had me already in the Church viewed from the outside and that impressed me! Great building! Then I visited the Church from the inside and was blown away! Finally I got me a ticket for the ascent of the Church for €8! I can recommend it to everyone! The views of Dresden's old town and the river Elbe is simply super! For Fussfaule would be worth mentioning, put back the first altitude via elevator. Then one runs to the top of the dome in the dome on a sloping way without stages. On the way there, you can always look through glass through the middle in the altar area from the top. Finally, it is to overcome even the last metres per head to reach the observation deck then after short. And then when the weather a super look! Really very much recommended and not overly demanding.

  • Think of a 28-City got $25,000 from the House bombed in World War 2, the House was destroyed in the city completely amazing point reached at the moment. History has managed to protect the texture of a church until the year 2005 renovations. Looking outside my there where you said how you lived that period conditions people they feel to see the impact of the war need to worship. With the old structure have been doing is very impressive. Please navigate the city cut down the time to go shopping Dresdene:)

  • 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.
