A special concern of the Frauenkirche is peace and reconciliation work.

Important representatives of public life and science are invited to discuss questions of peace several times during the year in order to outline paths to a culture of peace. As part of this offering, the concept of peace is broadly conceived so that it covers questions of individual, societal and global peace.  

The Forum Frauenkirche, which is organised primarily around lecture events, offers the possibility of inter-disciplinary dialogue and is intended to facilitate tolerance and understanding. The Forum events take place in cooperation with the Technical University of Dresden and the Chancellery of the Free State of Saxony.

Lecture theme 2014:
Europe at the crossroads - an idea put to the test

All lectures are given in German. For more information about the next dates and speakers please switch to the German version of this website. Thank you.
