This church offers a room full of pictures of the history of the church and at the same time of Dresden. The Church was rebuilt and is very simple

This church is different from most of the ornate churches we saw, it is much plainer. Like most of Dresden, it was destroyed in the bombing, and rebuilt. The baroque church has a rich history going back 800 years, but this building's origin dates to...More
