Open church

The Frauenkirche is an open house of God and man. It cordially welcomes all people to enjoy the beauty of the building and to receive the message of the church – building bridges, living reconciliation and strengthening faith. 

Normally, the Frauenkirche can be visited from Monday to Friday both in the mornings and the afternoons. Visiting is also possible at the weekends. However, we strongly recommend that you inform yourself in advance about the times when the church is open through the event schedule as times may have to be curtailed because in preparation for concerts platform building or rehearsals are necessary or, at the weekends, marriages, christenings and services are taking place.

Things to see and do

Whilst the church is open, the main church area can be visited. The galleries are not freely accessible. In order to get to know the Frauenkirche, you can choose from various offers:

Volunteer tour guides are available to answer questions. They can also tell you whether you can spontaniously join a guided tour. Audio guides can be hired for a small charge. In addition, different forms of material from tour guides for children to detailed brochures are offered for information. The Lower Church, as a place of serenity, is set aside for prayer and personal devotions. Normally, it is accessible at the times when the church is open. A small exhibition area informs about the destruction and reconstruction of the church.
