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.

  • Too new, too restored, too monumental and not church enough. Too much "have you seen me" and given the price it cost, it's a shame. Just like the suppression of the free Organ Concert on Sunday afternoon, inaugurated by J-S Bach at the beginning of the 18th century. If it's a matter of money (Dresde is a city near its subs) let's remember that the organ has been rebuilt with donations and grants!

  • Amazing chirch. Incredibly beautiful and large church. It stands alone in the square, towering above everything that is around it. Very beautiful architecture and design, both inside and outside... I rarely give churches a higher rating than usual, because I am skeptical of religion, but I never let this interfere with an unbiased assessment of the building itself. The greatness and aesthetics of this church are admired by the work done by its creators.
  • Amazing Church! Beautiful inside and outside. It's interesting to point how some bricks are darker on the outside. This is because those were part of the original construction before the destruction on WW 2.
