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.

Događaji

Dresden's film nights on the Elbe have taken the 'big' screen quite literally to heart. Not simply because this is Germany's largest open-air film festival but also because since 2004 the films have been shown on the world's biggest mobile screen, which measures a gigantic 448 square metres or 32 metres by 14 metres – offering a superlative cinematic experience.

The events take place on approximately 60 nights during the summer, around 50 of which take the form of film screenings including a number of German premieres. There are around 3,300 seats, 400 of which are particularly sought after because they are under cover and offer at-seat service.
The festival's name only tells half the story because some brilliant concerts also come under the film nights on the Elbe banner: R.E.M., Die Ärzte, Nelly Furtado and Die Fantastischen Vier are just a few of many who have appeared here. For these ten or so performances, the giant screen is rotated 90 degrees and handily becomes the stage's roof. All in all, the film nights on the Elbe offer an exceptional programme for around 150,000 people.
There's also one magical, free extra: for many, Dresden silhouetted against the evening sky is a highlight in itself. Many things have changed since the festival was founded in 1991, but this view forever stays the same, which surely makes the film nights on the Elbe the most beautiful open-air film and concert festival in Germany – and possibly even in Europe?
