The Church of Our Lady in Dresden

The Church of Our Lady in Dresden – an architectural masterpiece and memorial

A strikingly beautiful building and memorial in one: the Church of Our Lady in Dresden is more than just a house of God. It is a place for meeting and reconciliation, and is considered a symbol of peace the world over.

When the Church of Our Lady fell victim to the flames during the devastating bombing in the night of 13 February 1945, nobody imagined that another religious establishment would stand in its place 60 years later, true to its historic predecessor. The light and dark stones in the façade reveal that the Baroque domed building – the most important one of its kind to the north of the Alps – arose from the rubble. Angels' heads on either side of the altar and an eight-bell peal, which was used to signal the start of services between 1734 and 1925, are all witnesses to the church's past.

The Church of Our Lady was consecrated in 2005, after 12 years of construction. Concerts with renowned artists are evocative of the period around 1736, when Bach played the organ designed by Andreas Silbermann here. Church music still accompanies the services to this day, which are also held in English once a month. Those simply wanting to find themselves will have plenty of opportunity to do so in the church, in the Room of Silence beneath the church or while staring into the distance from the 67 metre high viewing platform offering fantastic panoramas of Dresden and the surrounding area.
