Frauenkirche, Dresden

4.7
Experience the fruits of postwar reconstruction at Frauenkirche. Although destroyed by Allied bombing in World War II, the rebuilt church recreates the original structure's imposing 18th-century Baroque architecture. Enter to see the grand hall, and head up to the dome (one of Europe's largest) for fantastic views and photo ops of the city. Before your trip to Dresden, make sure to check the cathedral’s website as they frequently hold concerts. Put Frauenkirche into our Dresden route builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Fortunately, the Frauenkirche has been reconstructed. This church is a beautiful place of prayer and breathes a special charm into Dresden's city centre. We used the time of the "open church" to look at the quiet cellar.

  • The beautiful and monumental Baroque Lutheran church, known as the Church of St. Mary (Frauenkirchen), is located in the Dresden Neumarkt. It was built between 1726 and 1743. He collapsed after the carpet raid of the Allies at Dresden at the end of World War II rebuilt at the turn of the 20TH and 21ST centuries. In 2005, he was again consecrated. It is not a way to miss a sightseeing. Recommend.

  • Really beautiful and in the heart of the city. You can walk from there to everything else in a circle a you will see everything that Dresden has to offer. There are pieces from the old church on the outside! If you head over there on Christmas time, check out their Christmas market it's small, but it's really beautiful. Try some of the locals favorites and enjoy it. Dresden is beautiful!
  • Beautiful "new" Lutheran Church, rebuilt fairly recently after the old one was destroyed in WWII. It's neat that architects and engineers used computer simulations of the destruction in order to incorporate the rubble into the reconstruction. You can tell the original stones because they are darker in colour than the rest.
