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.

  • We go wherever we are always churches. We make photos and burn a candle. Very beautiful church with pomp and circumstance.

  • Like so many sights of Dresden, the Catholic Hofkirche in Dresden, also belongs to this. These so many baroque buildings the Dresden has to offer are very beautiful.

  • We must say that it is not a masterpiece, then isn't seen, walked twice to find it, the door seemed shut. Nothing special for people coming from a Catholic country full of the most interesting churches, the reformed churches

  • 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, but really big. Not so clear where Eucharist is. Memorial of martyr P. Alois Andricky, too.
  • Exceptional. Take the time to go in. Shhhh!
  • 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

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.
