We attended a service here, sitting through a German language presentation of the iconography in the church. A wonderful way to end our days in Dresden.

Yet another part of Dresden that was painstakingly rebuilt after the destruction of WWII. Despite not speaking German, we even attended the 6pm service to appreciate it more.

It was a wise decision to (re)built this church. It is very special because of form, history and acoustics. Always full of people. We enjoyed a concert. Also the location is special. One can easily walk around it. The church has seven entrances, all even important. The architecture is very nice.

Much of Germany was in ruins after WW II. Everything is rebuilt. Dresden is no exception. However, the pride, the pains and the efforts the citizens of Dresden put in with the help of the corporate sector, Foundations, philanthropists and by organising fundraisers and events, is a manifestation of the love and care Dresdeners put in the restoration of The...

A church of beauty and hard work to rebuild . With easy access in the square. The church Dresden must be very proud of.

Going on the top of Frauenkirche gives you the best view of Dresden. The view from up is unbelievable.

A trip to the platform on the tower of the church is really worth the money. U can see the whole city from above and u can take great pictures. We really enjoyed the church from outside, inside and the view from above.

The Frauenkirche is many things to many people. Destroyed by allied bombing in February 1945, it was painstakingly rebuilt after the war to look exactly as it had the day before the raid. That, of itself, is surely a stupendous achievement by any standard. A monument to remind us all of the stupidity of war - yes, it is that... More

A true testament to 18th Century construction programs! The original Frauenkirche took fourteen years to build in the 18th Century and the rebuild in the 20th Century took eleven years. The events of 15 February 1945 that destroyed the original Frauenkirche, whilst tragic, shed some light on how dreams become reality .... and in this case - twice!! The church... More

Central to Dresden, amazing structure, a very informative and interesting tour, under construction but still very much worth a visit.
