Rebuilt

This is a must see. It was totally rebuilt after the war. The original parts of the building you can clearly distinguish as they are blackened from the bombings.

It is hard to believe that this magnificent church was bombed to the ground during WWII (in retaliation by the British for the Nazi's destroying Coventry). The recreation is fantastic. The scale and detailing is truly a impressive. Standing in the Neumarkt it is the central meeting point in the city. Not to be missed.

This church, representing one of the mother churches of The Lutheran faith, was completely destroyed in WWII. It stood as a pile of rubble until the began the restoration in the 1980s. It has been restored beautifully both outside and in. The front alter is spectacular and the circular interior seems to draw all parts together.

Breathtaking sculptural form, almost defies gravity in such a tall building. Having seen this building rise year on year from a pile of rubble to be able to appreciate again this amazing building again is remarkable.

This church stands for more than "just another pretty church". Its not only a monumental building but an amazing job of reconstruction. As much of the material found in the rubble as possible was used in reconstructing the building to the original plans. I cannot understand the reviewers who said "it looked too new" or "too pastel". It is new,... More

Wow! A must go and see...and experience! Beautiful reconstruction! And all financed via donations from across the world. If you visit Dresden make sure to reserve 1 hour to visit inside and climb some steps to the viewing platform on the top.

The Palm Sunday service was boring. The Handle was good but generally unwelcoming.The interior looked to new it was in pastel shades and didn't have much artistic endeavour.

The Frauenkirche had a very nice atmosphere & promoted peace. We didn't go to the top of the dome & instead sat in the peace and quiet.

The Church was reopened in 2006 after having been almost destroyed during the bombardements of Dresden in the second world war. The church is extremely beautiful and one of the most beautiful I have ever visited. There are frequently concerts in the church, but you can visit it for free just to enjoy this amazing building.

This lay derelict for nearly 50 years after RAF bombing. Restoration has been amazing but may seem slightly too new!.
