The history of this imposing landmark is troubled and inspiring. It was built in 1726 by the protestant community to defy the absolutism of the catholic ruler, Augustus II. The construction costs were huge, but it was completed despite all odds. Then on 13th February 1945 the British and American allied forces bombed the city and reduced it to a... More

The Frauenkirche is superb testament to the authorities who sanctioned the rebuilding of this fantastic building. Outside it looks as if it is an authentic original building and the inside takes your breath away. Beautiful.

Its the first place we visited and its a great way to get a feel of the city and its sights and to see your orientation. We thoroughly enjoyed the restored church and up to the Bell tower at the peak.

The first time I was in Dresden was in 1991 when the Frauenkirche was still a pile of broken stone and ruins. On my return this year, seeing this amazing building standing again was enough to send chills down my spine. It was breathtaking and worthy itself of the journey.

It's one of the partially rebuilt buildings in Dresden. It is in a beatiful square, very alive in the night. You can breath the history of the protestant history

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.
