Based on what happened in the Second World War, this is a place one has to see and while sitting in the church read its history.

We booked a train from Prague to Berlin with a 4 hour stop over at Dresden hoping to see some beautiful sights at what people call the Florence of Elbe. The 4 euro per luggage storage service at Dresden hbf was painful as we had 4 luggages and all of the coin lockers were full since it was the last... More

The location of this church and its external appearance is fabulous, and it dominates the skyline of the Altstadt (Old Town). The altar/sanctuary and the interior of the dome are worth the visit alone. A lot of the rest of the church is quite functional (as it should be), but the old cross is a focal point.

The interior of this church is both pretty and understated, it is quite bright and refreshing from your regular gothic style dark spaces of worship. The highlight though has to be the view from the top of the dome, be aware there is a lift but also quite a few steps and steep slopes to navigate to the top.

The church is very nice and the view from the top of the church is magnificent. Mainly I can recommend it during the Chrismas, when the Christmas markets are around the church. The way up is not difficult.

This is a magnificent church in the middle of the Christmas market and Martin Luther statue. The architecture is impressive as are the paintings. It is free to enter and the evening we were there someone was nicely playing the organ.

They conduct a choral service at 6pm with beautiful organ music and some prayer. Good opportunity to see inside. Lasted about 20 minutes. They then provide information on the cathedral and a tour. Everything is in German so didn't stay for that.

Recently rebuilt. We were happy that there was no wait, even though the city was very busy. The inside is very beautiful and worth a stop.

A master piece situated along the banks of Elbe with nice architecture. I will rate this as one of the must visit place in Dresden. One can easily spend hours taking photos in and around this place.
