The Frauenkirche is huge! There's space for 1,800 people in there! Most of the seats are located on balconies which makes the church look more like a theatre than like a church.

The colours and artwork inside the church is a bit strange (but original I think!). The pastel coloured walls as well as the kitschy angels everywhere definitely makes you think you are in a catholic Bavarian church, not in a protestant church in the east of Germany!

On some days you might have to queue to get inside the church. Luckily we went straight in. With all the people in here it's very hard to get a church-like feeling inside though. Why don't you just have a quick look and enjoy the rest of the Old Town??

Entrance to church is free (except for concerts). Climbing the church costs an amazing lot: 8 EUR!
