    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:)

  • 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 🇮🇩
