Go and visit the Fraunenkirche in the old city centre. Completely rebuild after the bombing in WW II, only finished in 2012 with donations. Climb up to the tower and the viewing platform, and enjoy the view over the Elbe and other nearby monuments.

The centerpiece of a wonderful plaza in old town Dresden, this church is beautiful inside and out. Although it's free to visit the inside of the church they do charge to go up to the top, but it's well worth the small cost. The trek up to the top isn't for everyone - if you're elderly or very out of... More

The Frauenkirche is beautiful in every aspect. My wife and I were first on the scene at 10am when the entry door to reach the dome opened, and so we had the place to ourselves for a short time. A visit to the top of the dome is a must. A lift takes you part of the way and then... More

Saxony is Protestant and the Frauenkirche is a wonderful example of Lutheran Baroque. Destroyed like the rest of downtown Dresden in early 1945, it has been rebuilt since unification. The Communist government left it a ruin as a memorial. The church's unique dome is a major feature of old town Dresden and well worth a visit. Notice the private rooms... More

It was free to enter but we left a donation because inside it was absolutely stunning! There was nothing to dislike at all.

My Husband studied in Dresden and we travel there to visit his best friend so I have been to Dresden quite a bit. During Christmas we were able to attend a concert in the church and then attended a Messe (mass) and what a breathtaking beauty this church is with wonderful acoustics. He is always extremely upset about the losses... More

I did not go inside. BUT, you will want to save your money for the restaurants all around. It was a terrible re-building job. But do not miss it.

What a monument to the futility of war and to the skills of the craftspersons who brought about this resurrection right in the heart of the old town of Dresden. It is fully wheelchair accessible - even to the dome and is worthy of everything that is written about.

This Church was a symbol of the bombing of 1945 and lay in ruins for 45 years. Now completely restored- it is a stunning building with magnificent views over Dresden and The Elbe- pay the 8 euro to climb to the top- it's not too hard! Wonderful building and so symbolic. A must see in Dresden
