  • Very good reconstruction of the Frauenkirche. Tower costs entry but you will be rewarded with a very nice view. The cellar vault is also impressive. Very good acoustics. I heard an organ concert in the Frauenkirche. I find the events taking place in the Frauenkirche very interesting and very nice. I really enjoyed the visit. Highly recommended.
  • Lovely church. And the view of Dresden and the Christmas Markets was superb. There is a discount for seniors taking the elevator to the viewing area around the top of the dome. But you must be capable of walking down.
  • This is truly a stunning space. The church was destroyed after WWII but was left flyby the East Germans as a war memorial for many years. Only recently has it been renovated and the interior is amazing. Worth the tour to experience the hall.
  • A fantastic example of the city's rebirth after the bombing during world war ii. The church rivals many of the other great churches of Europe but the added history of the community losing it then rebuilding it makes this a must stop in Dresden.
  • If you’re traveling to Dresden, this is a MUST SEE. There are a lot of stairs but the view from the top is completely worth it. Students with a valid/active ID get in for a discounted rate.
