Altarpiece of the Dresden Frauenkirche | Germany

Dresden Frauenkirche Altarpiece Interior

The Dresden Frauenkirche is one of structures that you have immediately on your mind when you think about that city on the Elbe River. I still remember how on TV they always asked for donations to rebuild the church when I was younger.

After the Frauenkirche was totally destroyed in the Second World War, the GDR regime decided to keep the ruins as a memorial. Finally, in 1994 Dresden begun to rebuild the church for more than 10 years and I was even more happy now that I was finally able to visit this place.

The interior of the Dresden Frauenkirche is very different from what I know of other churches. Much lighter, very friendly and kept in pastel colors. That results in a great contrast of the colors to the golden altarpiece and organ.

The Dresden Frauenkirche was part of the UNESCO World Heritage

The Dresden Frauenkirche and the whole Dresden Elbe Valley were part of the UNESCO World Heritage between 2004 and 2009. Unfortunately, the politicians from Dresden decided to build a new bridge that destroys the uniqueness and therefore Dresden was delisted from the World Heritage.

Sumfinity.com presents the hub for my works. I write about my impressions on my trips and during taking the photos. I try to provide you with insight into my artistic life, but the focus is always with the pictures. It fills me with pride when I see that my photos are sometimes viewed by approximately 150,000 people within 24 hours. I imagine that I can give all those people at least two seconds of pure pleasure. That’s 80 hours of happiness! In a world which is dominated by sad, upsetting and dismaying news, I’m so glad to be able to create a small counterpart.
