Best lookout points in Dresden – Kreuzkirche

IMG_5135-kl(Visit us on Facebook to see the picture in big scale)

During the next few weeks, we’ll present you the best lookout points. We’ll explore church towers, hills (where you can get to by bike) and other lookout spots. We’ll tell you where they are, if it cost you anything and what you can see there.


Today Marc caught some beautiful sunlight while climbing the tower of the Church of the cross! It’s quite impressive to watch. In comparison to other churches, this one has survived a big fire in 1897 and the bombing in 1945.


Unfortunately you can’t climb to the top of the tower – but there is a viewing platform in 54m height. To reach it, you have to climb up a lot of stairs! But your effort will be rewarded with a beautiful 360° surround view! While climbing up you’ll walk past the belfry which has got on of the biggest peal of bells in Germany.

Open ing times:

Monday – Friday 10am – 6pm
Saturday              10am – 3pm
Sunday                 10am – 6pm

Prices to climb the tower:

Adults                  3,00 Euro
Students             2,00 Euro
