4.5/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web
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.

  • This Cathedral is previously the most important Catholic parish church of the city, it was elevated to cathedral of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Dresden-Meißen in 1964. On my second trip to Dresden I finaly entered this pretty building with refined architecture. Hofkirche aka Trinity Church is located at Theater Square just on the rite corner or the Zwinger and across the fame Semper Opera House. You are allowed to take photos inside! :D
  • It's political story is far more interesting than the building it self.
  • Fantastic architecture! It is interesting that this church is actually white inside. And it's huge
  • Beautiful scenery!
  • This church is really impressive and you should not miss this place when travelling to Dresden
