The Frauenkirche, Church of Our Lady, dominates the skyline of Dresden and you can already see it from afar.
The sacred building was erected between 1726 and 1743. Its characteristic dome, called the "stone bell" because of its shape, collapsed on February 15th, 1945 under the rain of bombs. An anti-war monument during the GDR period, the rebuilding is finished now. Since October, 30th 2005 the steeple of the Frauenkirche overtops the Dresden skyline again.
The reconstruction of this lutheran church is an impressive symbol of international reconciliation after World War II, largely with donations from German and international foundations. The consecration attracted attention throughout the world.
