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...More

I was a little disappointed with this famous church. The architecture is nothing special; it's just the history of the church's destruction and reconstruction (after almost 60 years) that is interesting. The church is so packed with spot lights, speakers and other technical equipment that...More

As the church was open when I walked by I decided to go in. Like all churches you get the feeling of peace when you enter. The restoration was stunning and the organ is one of the largest that I have seen. Well worth visiting

A massive structure, surrounded by historical town. Went there early in the morning, escaped the crowds. Zwinger palace is walking distance, so are the other sights in dresden. You can walk by the river, a really long waterfront affording the best views. Beautiful city.

Dresden is on the river Elbe and its old town is stunningly beautiful, almost fully restored. It was neglected during its tenure as an East German city and little was done to restore the beautiful palaces and royal buildings but since reunification a great deal...More

Not only is the church impressive but also its history is amazing. When you see pictures of how the ruin looked from 1945 until the 90ies it seems a miracle the building got reconstructed in the way it is. The ascent to the dome offers...More

The design of the Frauenkirche is unique but inside there is very little art, outside of the altar (which is very beautiful and makes the visit worthwhile). We attended an organ concert--good organ but not such good acoustics. We've been finding--after numerous organ concerts around...More

It is unbelievable, but more than half a century after the Dresden bombing this signature building is back. It dominates the skyline of Dresden as in the centuries before. If you have the chance to visit the church or to take part in a service,...More

Beautiful from the outside and beautiful and very different to many ornate churches inside. Not what I was expecting for a Lutheran / protestant church in Germany but beautiful. History was interesting given it was only recently rebuilt after the 1945 RAF incendiary bombing. Well...More
