I grew up close to Dresden so I knew the destroyed church . It was black, Crumbled piece of something in an not so pleasant surrounding area. I remember it as a bit dark and frightening. Now look what has been achieved. One of the most beautiful churches I know. Light, full of light. Colorful inside and not to overloaded... More

Like a phoenix rising from its ashes, the church was rebuilt from the rubble using the original stones whenever necessary. It is truly a remarkable feat. The unusual circular layout of the interior and the cheerful color scheme project less of a devotional theme than a secular one. It's almost feel like an opera house, with multiple balconies facing the... More

Worth a visit. A cultural highlight and a super romantic Christmas market right in front during December.

It is definitely worth visiting the Frauenkirche, as well as the area surrounding it. Beautiful architecture with lovely shops nearby.

Definitely my favourite monument that I saw in Dresden! The height of the building truly surprised me. There is a real view of the majority of the center from the top floor. It was mildly annoying there as the top floor was filled with people and was therefore crowded more than I would like. The church itself was a nice... More

It is a beautiful, amazing church. Sitting there feels like sitting in theatre - decoration and acoustics doesn't really reminds standard churches that you can visit.

History of this building aside, the rebuild is breath-taking and a must see. For about 10 euros you can take a trip to the belfry for what are probably the best views of Dresden Altstadt. It is much higher than it looks from the ground. I was there during a busy period however I had ample opportunity to take heaps... More

A magnificent church and very hard to believe it's virtually all rebuilt stone by stone since WW2. And it looks magnificent. We went in with German family members, finding it hard to believe what had happened all those years ago. It was lovely to learn that Coventry and Dresden had swapped crosses after the war - a wonderful show of... More

I've visited the place so many time but it's still one of the most beautiful sight for me. The interior and exterior is equally nice and if you have time, climbing up to the top is also worthy :)
