If you are visiting Dresden you really should visit Frauenkirche. When you see pictures of the church after the bombing in 1945 and that in 1952 it was still ruined it is amazing that it was rebuilt to look exactly as it did and it looks so old. When you look at the brick work outside you can see the... More

It can be quite a peaceful place, if you choose a quiet time to visit. Our first attempt coincided with a mass, and so, as a kind usher was explaning when we could return, some impatient church goers were pushing us out of their way. :-) We returned early the next morning. There is a very ornate altar, and some... More

It's almost unbelievable that the Frauenkirche was consecrated in 2005. It's free to look inside (it's closed 12-1 pm) and €8 to go up to the top (open all day). Accessibility-wise there is a lift that will take you to the bottom of the dome (up only), after which you walk up the sloping path. You then come to a... More

Beautifully restored church. Worth visiting the downstairs exhibit. We visited during the week which was great as the crowds were not too big.

I like visiting churches - just to enjoy the place. It is amazing how well they were able to restore this one. Looking at the facade you are able to distinguish original and restored stones. Amazing.

I am a real history buff, and was moved to tears when I first visited the Frauenkirche. The history is very moving, but being there is an experience never to be forgotten.

Just looking at this church makes you appreciate how resilient the people of Saxony are. The "speckled" appearance reflects the original material vs. the new material used to rebuild after WWII. The interior is one of the prettiest I've seen in a European church. . .it's soft, with colors that look more like a young girl's bedroom decorations than of... More

This is THE must see in Dresden. Beautifully restored. The large number of tourists do not detract from its solemnity. Check the programme of concerts. We went to a piano recital which was held in the 'unterkirche', the undercrypt. Most enjoyable.

This is probably one of my most favourite places in Germany. Some stones of the original church were used in the restoration - a brilliant job! These stones are easily identified by their darker colour. The inside is magnificent as well. The crucifix of the original church is on display - all distorted from the fires. So much history seen...
