Spent considerable time taking in the atmosphere of this church and even lit a candle for good luck (donation required). One of the nicest churches visited in a 6 week holiday throughout Europe. Little xmas market right next to it.

I had read about the painstaking reconstruction of this church and found it fascinating how pieces of the original ruin were incorporated into it. I wasn't prepared for the stunning elaborate baroque interior. A true symbol of rebirth, reconciliation and forgiveness.

This is a must see... but one has to see the inside! It would do any visitor good to Google pictures of the church following WW2. The church was completely destroyed, and that they were able to rebuild it the way they did is absolutely amazing. We visited during December, and were able to tale a seat inside for a... More

We were disappointed by the quality of the interior refurbishment. The use of cheap wood, fake marble and faux stone painting (even on the wooden doors) made this feel like a rebuild done on the cheap. Yes, the exterior is spectacular and the interior volume is impressive, but the quality of the interior was a veritable Disneyesque effort. Compared to... More

This church was completely destroyed during the World War II, however was meticulously reconstructed in 2004 with hundreds of architects, art historians and engineers sorting the thousands of stones, identifying and labeling each for reuse. The new church is truly amazing, and provides a cool resting place for very tired feet.

Just amazing, a beautiful church made all the more poignant by the fact it has been rebuilt which is hard to believe. My husband was here 20 years ago and saw all the stones stacked up on shelves. Hard to believe how it has changed.

Interesting place especially when you know the history. To think they this church was totally rebuilt, brick by brick. Go to the 12.00 service, which the minister also uses as a platform to talk a bit about the church while giving a little sermon. You cannot visit the church during this time, but sitting here for 40 minutes or so... More

So much of Dresden was destroyed during the war, and the fact that resources and manpower were put into rebuilding this important church is a real testament to the recovery of the region. It stood out to me for the use of pastels inside. After seeing many cathedrals in Europe, it has a lighter presence that made it stand out... More

Suffered greatly in the heavy bombing raids of 13/14 February 1945. It is one of the two main churches in the Dresden alt stadt. The other is the Roman Catholic Hoffkirche which is nearby.
