If your heading into Old Dresden from the direction of the train station, the Frauenkirche is the first major structure you would see at the far side of the statued courtyard upon entering old town. It's a pretty impressive structure if you consider that only a portion of one wall was left after being firebombed during WWII. While a largely... More

Nothing was spared to re-build it - and it showed. I was expecting to see a bigger interior - but it would probably detract from the perfect symmetry of forms and structures.

This is an amazing building and example of German engineering. This majestic church was pretty much flattened during the Dresden bombing of WW2. After the war, the Germans rebuilt the church. Due to the detailed architectural plans available they were able to reuse some of the rubble (some 20%) in the reconstruction and claim that any bricks used, are placed... More

It is rebuilt as it was before the British and the U.S. Bombed the center of Dreden away, but there are few old parts of walls etc left. The inside of... More

This has been virtually completely rebuilt. Colourful and also a bit different as it is round. Go to the basement and view the story of the destruction and the rebuild. So interesting especially as I live in Christchurch, New Zealand, I refer to the earthquake and the mess it made of our churches.

Like the title says, from the outside, the architecture is very beautiful and gigantic. However, inside the church, it is not as special as many other churches or cathedrals in Europe, perhaps because it was destroyed during World War. Nevertheless, it is still worth a visit.

Its architecture is amazing both inside and outside. It's placed on the center of the city, by a full of life plaza that welcomes commerce and where it was recently founded trinches from the WW.

Just have to pop your head into this place - wonderful ceilings and general architecture. Hard to believe that the city have managed such a re-build./ renovation.

Considering that this church has been rebuilt from the rubbles the result is just breath taking. A very special building!
