We visited this church twice, once for a concert, and again the following day to retrieve a jacket left at the concert. The architecture and decorations -- ancient and modern -- are breath-taking. It is still a living Protestant congregation as as well as a...More

We have visited this church just to kill time, we have seen many before. I paid the 1 euro to be able to take photos, but I think entry was free as my husband and daughter entered without paying. The church was build in the...More

To be honest, I really didnt expect that a 'Dorf' Church would be this pretty, as it has an ordinary exterior. I adore the ceiling and especially the tribune areas, it reminds me alot of one of my fave church in Germany: die Frauenkirche (Church...More

Few people know that southern Saxony, not far from Dresden, is one of the most enchanting and authentic regions in Germany. St Mary's church in Pirna is a recently-restored medieval architectural gem. The church interiors are exquisite.

This church in the center of Pirna is nicely decorated inside. On the outside the main part is the huge roof with "eyes", which is much higher than the ceiling of the interior. The church and the surrounding buildings fit each other beautifully.

It is only a short walk from the attractive Am Markt to this great church. It gloriously dominates Kirchplatz. We walked up the steps leading to Schloss Sonnenstein. This gives great views over Pirna and particularly the red-roofed Marienkirche with its eye-like features. The church...More
