The Dresden Cathedral is part of the beautiful skyline of Dresden. The gothic structure has so many details to walk around and look at on the outside as well as the inside. The outside includes large sculptures of saints all around the top, as well...More

No, one does not usually pay to visit an open church. Perhaps if it is being uded as a venue for an advertidrd concert. In that case you will surely find notices.
