Added hours & entry info for Frauenkirche
Dresden is a very beautiful, light spirited city, especially in summer, when you can appreciate the serene setting of the historic centre. Although Dresden is larger than [[Munich]] when measured by area, the historic centre is quite compact and walkable. Be sure to check out these places while in Dresden.
* <see name="Frauenkirche" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="" email="" fax="" url="http://www.frauenkirche-dresden.de/" hours="" price="">The original Church of Our Lady was completely destroyed during WWII; however, it has been reconstructed. The City of Coventry, which was raided by the Luftwaffe in WWII, donated the golden cross for the dome of the church. Check out some ruins in the basement. Do not miss the tower visit and bring good shoes to climb in (otherwise you will not be admitted!).</see>
