" Hofkirche inside" Hofkirche - Catholic Cathedral Tip by Kuznetsov_Sergey
Hofkirche - Catholic Cathedral, Dresden: 33 reviews and 84 photos
The exterior of the church is striking, with its 85.5m high tower and its 78 statues in niches and on the balustrades.
Notable features of the interior are the processional ambulatories, Balthasar Permoser's magnificently carved pulpit (1722), the altarpiece of the Ascension (by Mengs, 1750-51) and the Silbermann organ (1750-53), Silbermann's last and finest work.
In four burial vaults are the remains of kings and princes of Saxony. An urn contains the heart of Augustus the Strong. His body was buried in Krakow.
