  • Very beautiful Church. Unfortunately closed for visiting. Nice square and surroundings with many bars/restaurants.  more »
  • This time the visit was blocked indoors due to the concert. It was great to see it in the evening light as well. A great example of a ruin as an intact church.  more »

  • Very good reconstruction of the Frauenkirche. Tower costs entry but you will be rewarded with a very nice view. The cellar vault is also impressive. Very good acoustics. I heard an organ concert in the Frauenkirche. I find the events taking place in the Frauenkirche very interesting and very nice. I really enjoyed the visit. Highly recommended.
  • Lovely church. And the view of Dresden and the Christmas Markets was superb. There is a discount for seniors taking the elevator to the viewing area around the top of the dome. But you must be capable of walking down.
