Sankt Martin Kirche, Dresden

4.7
#11 of 13 in Historic Sites in Dresden
Church Tourist Spot
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.

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.

  • 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.
  • 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!
