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

Good that it has finally been rebuilt, good that we still have the craftsmen capable of doing just that, good that the country that knocked it down made contributions to its renaissance, good that original materials were used wherever possible, great that the Dresden skyline from the other side of the Elbe is now again as Canaletto saw it. The... More

it is placed in the heart of the old town. the church was restored in 2006 and there is only 40% of the origin material. It was demolished during bomb attack in 1945. I suggest to everyone to read something about history of Dresden before visiting, at least about the bomb attack in 1945. It helps you to understand this... More

It is great to see this building restored ,as far as possible to former glories. The painstaking work undertaken to get this back to its original state down to using some of the original blackened stones is a feat in itself and a real testament to the will power of the people of this city

The church has many behind the scenes stories and trivia which are worth researching prior to visiting. The church can be quite crowded, but having some basic ideas prior to the visit, makes the congestion less of an issue (one knows what to look for, etc). The significance of this building can't be downplayed when considering the place of Dresden... More

This church was literally built out of the ashes of WWII. It was rebuilt stone by stone to become a living memorial to courage. It was a beautiful church and history lesson that only God could have orchestrated! It is a MUST SEE in this beautiful and inspirational city!

This is a truly amazing testament to industriousness, will-power and engineering prowess of the German people. Completely destroyed during the war, it has been remarkably rebuilt (with original stones salvaged and placed in the new structure, as evidenced by their darker appearance). We were fortunate to have tickets to see a concert and thereby observe the interior of this stunning... More

Spending 8 euros, you can climb to the top of the dome. It is a nice workout with rewarding view to the city and close examination of th e dome structure.
