When I visited Dresden for the 1st time in 1999, the Frauenkirche was still a heap of rubbel. They've done a tremendous job. The church and Luther are again on their feet. It is a memorial against war. Wht I did not like are the various colorful Christmas stalls selling Glühwein and Wurst very close to the church.

The last time I was in Dresden, early 1990's, the Frauenkirche was in ruins...a casualty of WWll. My main reason for returning to Dresden this time was to see its reconstruction. Well, I was not disappointed. It has been beautifully and lovingly restored. The sections that survived the war stand out as a striking reminder of its history. The Baroque... More

The Dresden Frauenkirche attracts attention by its remarkable history. It was almost destroyed in 1945. Only one wall was unharmed. And the church was solemnly opened in 2005.

The Frauenkirche sits in the Neumarkt close to the Elbe. It wasn't reconstructed until the 21st century, after reunification. The church is an active presence on the market. In just a couple of hours, we heard its bells ring at regular intervals; we enjoyed wandering (excellent) opera singers standing in its shadows and singing Mozart; we witnessed family groups gathering...

We visited Dresden for its famed Christmas Markets and our favourite market was here, beside the Frauenkirche. It lends itself to an atmospheric Christmas ambience and is lit up fabulously at night time. During the day there are also piano playing street artists which makes the Church and square a fantastic stopover to enjoy a coffee and people watch.

Amazing! A must see to appreciate the love of the people of Dresden and Germany in the restoration of this beautiful landmark. Frauenkirche is an active church having regularly scheduled Lutheran services; so be mindful of schedules. Church has many points of interest and viewing locations. Facility management asks visitors to be mindful of the facility and be respectful as... More

The square in front with a statue of Martin Luther covered in snow was moving, I was very surprised with the richness of the altar. Worth going inside.
