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.

Outside has been rebuilt post war in the original style but inside is disappointing as of course much of the decoration one usually finds in such a church was destroyed.

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.
