Dresden Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady)

View On Black

 

The Dresdner Frauenkirche ("Church of Our Lady") is a Lutheran church in Dresden, Germany.

 

The Dresden Frauenkirche survived the firebombing of Dresden during World War II but was totally burned out and collapsed the next day. It has been reconstructed as a landmark symbol of reconciliation between former warring enemies. The reconstruction of its exterior was completed in 2004, its interior in 2005 and after 13 years of rebuilding, the church was reconsecrated on 30 October 2005 with festive services lasting through the Protestant observance of Reformation Day on 31 October.

 

Once a month, an Anglican Evensong in English is held in the Frauenkirche, with clergy sent from St. George's Anglican Chaplaincy in Berlin.
