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

What a beautifully decorated Protestant church. It has been rebuilt and completed in the 1990s after a fire gutted it in 1945.The dome is unusual. well worth a visit and if you can catch a concert there you will enjoy the great acoustics.

In Protestant country this recently reconstructed church looked very much like a Baroque church out of Catholic Bavaria with its bright white and gold interior. Worth a short quiet visit though.

We needed somewhere to stop to have lunch and stretch our legs but never knew the treat that was in store for us. Old Town Dresden was stunning, and we even managed to grab an on-street disabled parking space for free. The sun was partially out and we were all happy to explore a beautiful surprise city, we had a... More
