Katholische Hofkirche - Dresden, Dresden
(4.5/5 based on 420 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.

  • Hofkirche, a catholic church in Dresden is built in a city of contrast. The rulers were Catholic, converted to ascend the throne of Poland. Its subjects were Lutheran, going as far as having a competing church, the Frauenkirche built around the same time as the Hofkirche. Construction of Hofkirche started a decade later and upon completion immediately become a dominating silhouette of the Dresden skyline. It’s worth taking a closer look at the Hofkirche. Intricate statues along its facade as well as the burial place of almost all the electors of Saxony.
  • 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
  • Amazing place!
