Sankt Martin Kirche, Dresden

4.8
Admire a blend of Roman Catholic and Lutheran architectural tradition at Sankt Martin Kirche, a rare bi-confessional cathedral built for the large Saxon army stationed in Albertstadt. Constructed from 1893 to 1900--and undamaged by World War II airstrikes--the church features a neo-Romanesque and Gothic style executed in sandstone with dual rooms, a large rose window, and a slim belfry clock tower. Step inside to see ornamental paintings, tall stained-glass windows, an ornate altar, and a sandstone pulpit, then climb the tower for a sweeping view of the city. Note that currently the church has Catholic mass only. Add Sankt Martin Kirche to your Dresden travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Dresden trip itinerary maker website .

  • The garrison church of St. Martin is in the northern part of the Dresden city centre between the officer School of the German armed forces and the military history museum. It was completed in 1900 and served as so-called an interdenominational church with part of a Protestant and a Catholic part of the Saxon Army soldiers. The powerful and beautiful church has a 90 metre-high tower and is visible from afar. We discovered them on the way to the Museum and inserted a short break here. We particularly liked the opulent building with numerous towers and the fresh, red roof.

  • This is one of my favorite churches in Europe. I think simply because it is, well, simple. It is solely focused on Christ and the stained glass is so pretty in the late morning.  more »
  • The Church is interesting, but only its architecture from the historical point of view there is little notable yet. Was conceived as a double church, today used as a Protestant! Near the Museum of the Bundeswehr and the garrison cemetery of Soviet soldiers! Interessant, die Architektur ihrer Geschichte ist aber that came to bescheidend! Gebaut als Doppelkirche, heutzutage ausschließlich evangelische Kirche! Nicht weit liegt das Bundeswehr Museum und Friedhof der sowjetischen Soldaten Garnison!

  • The people from this church are loving, caring and BLESSED. And the most Special thing for me is, " I didn't find this Church, This Church found me & cared for me." This place is not beautiful naturally only but also with beautiful people.
  • From the outside, an incredible edifice, unfortunately you can not see as much of the interior building. Very low-key Interior ...

  • A construction like in a fairy tale. Absolutely fascinating. And how many doors of the building. The building looks different from really any perspective. Class structure!
