I guess chosen wrong time to visit. Though city looked beautiful at first glance but was disappointing at the end. Frauenkirche was must watch on our list but Monday evening demonstration made us feel insecure. As a foreigner taking public transportation to reach Frauenkirche from hotel was difficult. Fear of getting attacked if talking in English was big. Will not... More

Sorry but I found the 21st century version of this iconic structure really sad. I think that the rubble that preceded it - like the Gedachtniskirche has much more impact. The rebuild has been beautifully done - but it's like it's been done in technicolour. My major regret is that I didn't see it before it was rebuilt.

Interesting architecture, a total of 3,000 seats, you have definitely got to climb to the dome and enjoy a panoramic view of the city

I dont like to much to visite churchs - but this one is different. We had a chance for a short look inside and to walk through short before a service. Great and unbelievible. Really a place you MUST visite when you are in Dresden!

The history of Frauenkirche church is really touching: destroyed in the wild bombing of Dresden, forgot during the DDR time, rebuilt after Germany riunification with money collected worldwide! Solid example at the same time if the worst and best quakities if human beings!

We have traveled to Germany several times and love the country. Most of our trips have been down the rivers or in Bavaria. I have a cousin that lives in North Germany and was from Dresden. We talked and decided to spend a couple of days after Christmas in Dresden. We were so surprised to see how wonderful old town... More

You can't visit Dresden without visiting this beautifully restored & historic church. All the main attractions in Dresden are more or less in walking distance from each other. Fraunkirche is centrally located and can't be missed.

This church is absolutely stunning. It makes for some great photos from the outside, as well as inside. Compared to a lot of other old European churches, this one seems quite well preserved as well. The colour design makes it very picturesque and distinctive.
