Completely destroyed in 1945, rebuilt by 1962 by East German Government, Roman Catholic Cathedral of Holy Trinity stands on the bank of river Elbe. Beautiful structure inside and outside, it was never very popular in Dresden, because most of the City population were Protestants.

The Catholic Church in Dresden is beautiful from the outside and very simple on the inside. Not my favourite church in the city for a visit, but still worth a quick visit. Lovely photo opportunities outside!

No, one does not usually pay to visit an open church. Perhaps if it is being uded as a venue for an advertidrd concert. In that case you will surely find notices.
