Full description
Learn more about the history, architecture and religious significance as well as the renovation and present use of the Frauenkirche. Choose from two different ways to visit.

1. Ticket type: Organ recital with church tour for individual bookings and groups

See the organ recital and tour the church from Monday to Saturday at 12:00 PM and Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at 06:00 PM. After the organ service, you can explore the history and architecture of the Frauenkirche right from your seats.
A guide speaks from the pulpit and you can sit back and enjoy. The organ service and central tour are held in German. Though there are nearly 600 seats in the nave, you may also reserve a space in the gallery for your group, if you'd like. The whole tour runs for around 1 hour.

Daily tours with different start times take place as a combined tour. On this tour, single participants may enjoy the chance to join a tour (maximum 30 participants, duration approximately 50 minutes) through the church and first gallery.

This is a day ticket without a specific start time. Time changes may happen due to weddings, baptisms or other church services. It is best to contact the tour operator by telephone after booking to confirm the exact start time of your tour. The telephone number can be found on your voucher.

Great ! Absolutely impressive - from the outside as well as from the inside. The booked tour starts on time. A bit jostled at the entrance because several groups asked for admission at the same time. The interior of the Frauenkirche all the more impressive! Music - a little prayer - music. The acoustics of the organ are great. Afterwards, history and current issues are explained directly from the pulpit and transported well via inconspicuous loudspeakers. When we left we still had a few questions, which were very nicely and comprehensively explained to us by the staff present.

An exciting experience

The visit to the Frauenkirche was a special experience. Unfortunately, the historical overview given by the lecturer was difficult or even not understandable for a number of the guests with whom we still spoke after the event, since he was sobbing very strongly and slipping into the associated "mumbling". A pity!!
