Sankt Martin Kirche, Dresden

(4.8/5 based on 15+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is a landmark in Dresden due to its imposing structure. Still in use as Catholic Church for worshippers. It is worth the time to explore the interiors too.  more »

  • If you even have the chance on the steeple will come to, she's packing. Probably the best views of Dresden.
