Church Landmark
Experience the fruits of postwar reconstruction at Frauenkirche Dresden. 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. See Frauenkirche Dresden and all Dresden has to offer by arranging your trip with our Dresden trip itinerary builder.

  • It is a lovely church to visit and full worth going when you are there anyway. When you are lucky like us the choir is rehearsing which is great.  more »
  • If you can see a picture of what it looked like after the war, you would be surprised with what they have accomplished here. It's a wonder!  more »

  • The Frauenkirche was much more impressive when I first saw it in 1991 as a heap of debris and rubble and as such as a really vivid warning against war. Now it surely is nicely rebuilt and I do admire the technical achievements which allowed it to do so, but now that I have seen it in its rebuilt state I feel that it should not have been done. Inside it looks like what it is: a new building, which only resembles the original. As such, it just fully lost its warning potential to mankind which it had before in its destroyed state.
  • It is a beautiful church with very light colour in the inside. The few from the top was amazing but beware of some very deep and narrow steps
  • What a view! Pay €8 to go upstairs with an elevator and walk the last part up. Very nice. Not for wheelchairs I'm afraid 👎🏻
  • The church's architecture is beautiful, but, the visit experience was completely arbitrary. We are English speaking tourists, the church was open for public visiting at 11:55. We got inside, and walked a bit. But we got locked in at 12pm. We couldn't go out of the church. They closed the doors and didn't let us out even after asking people of the church.
  • I'm Muslim and i love the Frauenkirche, that's beautiful i hope i'll visit there soon greet from Indonesia 🇮🇩

Where to stay in Dresden

The Old City, or Altstadt district, is the city's historical center. You'll find a wide selection of accommodations around the major tourist sites. For an area that stays active both day and night, consider lodging in Aussere Neustadt, located northeast of the Old City. The Hellerau District has an urban and hip vibe, thanks to the fashionable young locals who populate the area. Boutique hotels contribute to the area's chic feel.
