Definitely have to visit this church in Dresden. The inside took my breath away - I have never seen anything like it. It does seem to be busy all the time, so it's hard to take time for a bit of reflection.

We planned our timing in town to coincide with the hours that this church would be open. We are glad we did as it’s quite beautiful. You really do need to understand the story of the war and its affect on the city to fully...More

This is one of the most beautiful churches I've ever been in. Rebuilt and finished around 2005 after being damaged in WW2. Well worth a visit.
