Fodor's Review

Soaring high above the Altmarkt, the richly decorated tower of the baroque Kreuzkirche dates back to 1792, but Dresden's main Protestant church has graced this spot for more than 800 years. The church's massive exterior is punctuated by a very simple and dignified nave. It was here that Lutherans celebrated their first mass in Saxony in 1539. A famous boys' choir, the Kreuzchor, performs here regularly (check website or call for times).
