This church is very interesting on the outside and I also liked the inside. It is perhaps unusually plain for a Catholic Church but I prefer this. When we visited someone was practising the organ so we heard some lovely music as well. Totally different...More

My husband and I stopped at the Katholische Hofkirche to hear an organ recital, performed on an organ from 1745. The recital was at 4pm on a weekday and open to the public. The pure sound of this organ brought tears to my eyes. My...More

Frauenkirche is just a nice one, but a Disney one. Just enjoy the Hofkirche in Dresden. The Hotels around you will find by yourself.

This church is a little disappointing on the inside, as it is rather plain. The outside though is very beautiful and classic. Worth a visit while in Dresden.

We found this church absolutely stunning! It has a pristine interior, perhaps due to renovation following bomb-damage from the war, but has a wonderful peaceful atmosphere that was amazing to experience. There is also a moving memorial to the martyrs who were killed during 1942-43.

Nice church to visit. Organ, paintings, statues. Not as spectacular as the other cathedral, but definitely worth a 10 minute stop.

No, one does not usually pay to visit an open church. Perhaps if it is being uded as a venue for an advertidrd concert. In that case you will surely find notices.
