Katholische Hofkirche - Dresden, Dresden

4.6
One of the last and most impressive buildings of the Roman Baroque epoch, Katholische Hofkirche - Dresden can be seen from all over the city. Its sandstone edifice is covered with fine architectural details that make its exterior distinctive. The bulk of construction on the buildings wasn't completed by Germans, but by Italian builders, architects, and a sculptor. The interior white walls and gilded altar are majestic and echo the grandeur of the outside and the Baroque observance of elegance. Visit during a service to enjoy the chapel's acoustics.

  • One of the highest buildings in Dresden - located on the promenade and stands one directly in the eye with the great details. Great from the inside from the outside!

  • The grim-looking inside the Church offers many altars and beautiful corners. It is also worth to climb the tower.

  • Wednesdays and Fridays there are impressive demonstrations of organ playing from 11:30 to 12:00. Really worth!. The Church itself faded slightly in addition to the magnificent Church of our Lady.

  • The brickwork on this building is amazing. You have to look at every building and imagine it was rubble and how its been built back just amazes me every time! Shame that some places in the world can't even build something like this one time, never mind two times after what the allies did to Dresden!
  • Interesting layout and interior design for a catholic church. Worth doing a tour to get a good explanation of it.
  • Nice Church with great exterior design.
  • Amazing place with great history but i don't have time to go inside but enjoy walking around with our guide during our tour,but there was alots of construction and workers
  • Nice, but really big. Not so clear where Eucharist is. Memorial of martyr P. Alois Andricky, too.
