One of Dresden's star turns.

This splendidly rebuilt church gives an indication of the glories of the old Dresden. Do not go for quiet contemplation as it is a busy tourist hub.

The reconstructed ceiling in the chapel is a marvel of superb German workmanship. Also the exhibition of some of the treasures in the upper floors of the palace are impressive with good examples of the intricate detail in the items on display.

I saw the great baroque interiors of the cathedral. But it was not clear when and how to enter the cathedral. I barely knew the hour to enter the interiors but did not know it is possible to go up to the dome.

As most of Dresden, the Frauenkirche was restored after the destruction of WW2, but the reconstruction has been carried out faithfully in keeping with the original architecture. I am an atheist myself, but frequently visit churches/temples to admire the art/architecture. I found this to be a really unusual church interior, and a lovely one. The interior truly fits the name... More

It's free to visit the main nave of the church, so definitely stick your head in and have a look. Otherwise, it costs a couple or euros to climb to the top of the dome and there are some awesome views. The climb isn't too strenuous either as the building is relatively new.

Also destroyed by the bombs of the allies, this magnificent church was rebuilt to its former glory although it feels a little bit empty from the inside, it is of course still worth visiting...

The history of this Church is very interesting only being rebuilt after the Russian occupation ceased. The effort to restore this simply wonderful building as sympathetically as they have achieved. It is my opinion it shows not only the skills and determination of the people but also a heavenly blessing

From ruins of WWII to the major church in Dresden - maybe the story of Frauenkirche is more breathtaking than the building itself. Watch two different colors of stones in facade - old are black, new are light.

Amazing to see the restoration of this church after its devastation in WWII and neglect during the communist years. Also amazing to consider that it's only been rebuilt in the past 20 years. Go up the tower for views of the city!
