I was really looking forward to seeing the church, given the history and that it has just been rebuilt from ruins after so so many years. I was really shocked that the staff on site spoke so little English and there seemed to be so little in place for the obvious curiosity of English speaking visitors due to the past.... More

The interior and exterior have been rebuilt with loving care. In a wide-open plaza with lots of activities around it. This is the showpiece of the city.

Well worth going. You take a lift up so far then climb up inside the dome to the top, and then via a tight litle spiral stair you pop up to the very top viewing tower for and AMAZING panorama. It is a must.

While in Dresden, take the time to visit this rebuilt church. It was destroyed in WWII by British bombing raid and was not rebuilt until approx 2005. The design is not the standaed "cross" design of most churches of the time, but circular in design. The woodwork and gold of the altar is spectacular.

in the middle of the town you find Frauenkirch, with its amazing history. An amazing space under the church, where you also can see original stones from the church before the bombing in 1945. A must see in Dresden.

This church has done more for the reconciliation of nations than any other church I know. The tragedy of it's bombing in the 2WW became visible to international visitors when the Berlin Wall came down. Since then people from all over the world have donated money for it's rebuilding. It now stands in all it's original glory, and beauty and... More

I've been inside a number of churches across Europe, although I don't remember one with an interior like the Frauenkirche. The pastel colors are amazing, and completely unlike the typical "cold" interiors you find in centuries-old churches. When I originally saw the lines waiting to get inside the church, I passed up the opportunity, thinking "how different can this one... More

Recommended to see inside, even if only for a short peek. It's beautiful! Neat to see the outside too: the original surviving black sandstone blocks; the renovated light sandstone blocks. We were very limited on time so we didn't get to climb the tower, but I wish we had!

Very interesting to visit, learning the history of this building. It was destroyed during bombings in WW2 and was rebuilt with some original bricks (can tell from the light and dark stonework) we didn't do a guided tour, just visited briefly on our way through town. It was sad to see the signs saying NO photography walk past it and... More
