Dresden: Guided Tour of the Church of Our Lady

1. Dresden: Guided Tour of the Church of Our Lady

After meeting your guide in front of the Church of Our Lady, or the Frauenkirche, you’ll head right into the marvelous structure for a thorough tour. After being all but completely destroyed by bombing during World War II, the ruins of the church were left standing for decades. However, after the reunification of Germany, an ambitious campaign was mounted to reconstruct it. After over a decade of construction based on George Bähr’s original plans from the 1720s, the Church of Our Lady was restored to its former glory in 2005. Ever since, its ornate interior and expansive cupola have beckoned visitors to see its glorious tale of rebirth. During your tour, you’ll gain exclusive access to the church’s gallery, and pick up countless insights into the structure that stands representative of Dresden’s progress as a whole.

Our night watchman Klaus gave us an entertaining tour of beautiful Dresden. We had a lot of fun and got a lot of information about Dresden at the same time. The time flew by. Clear recommendation!

Excellent conscientious guide in Wolfgang. Small group (no flag!) makes you less obvious. He is entertaining, enthusiastic and informative.

Excellent tour - guide is very motivated to share her knowledge. And we concluded with a tour in the Opera. 3 fantastic hours in total.

We can only recommend this type of sightseeing. You can disembark along the way and take a closer look at the sights.

Interesting tour, lots of history. Friendly guide who seem to enjoy his job. Great experience- highly recommend!
