  • 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.

  • 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.
