Something worth walking in while there and it has an interesting history which I happened to hear somewhat by accident. The building architecture is impressive. Art is minimal.

A very interesting window into the complicated politics of central Europe in the 18th and 19th century, this church is relatively austere by comparison with the protestant Frauenkirche. Its very existence is a testimony to the ease with which monarchs of the time switched religious allegiance when a bigger prize became available!!!

If you want to visist a beautiful baroque church, come and see the Hofkirche.
You should definitely not miss to listen to the Silbermann organ during a regular service or one of the concerts or shorter organ plays. The times and dates can be found on the internet or on a pamphlet outside the church.

Worth the trip in as well, the interior has been beautifully restored. Convenient tram stop at Theaterplatz where you can visit the Semper Opera, Zwinger, Hofkirche and Schloss, (Green Vault) in one visit. Just plan well. Walk through Procession of Princes to see Frauenkirche and have lunch on square at Freiberger. Albertinum is behind the square if you need more museum time.

This refurbished chuch was redone so well. We were able to enjoy an organ concert in the church, and the accoustics was incredible. A true tribute to the best of the ages!
