“Come and go in peace” is the motto for the opening of the night of silence at the Frauenkirche from 10 pm. The late-night event traditionally follows the joint ringing of all of Dresden’s church bells. Visitors enter the modestly lit main room via entrance D and experience a steady shift between sound and silence. There will be intercessory prayers, a choir and organ music. It will continually become completely silent. Visitors are invited to listen to the silence, pause for a moment and reflect. Prayer lights can be placed in front of the choir balustrade. Cello music also awaits visitors in the lower church.

  • Location: The Frauenkirche’s lower church and main room
  • Responsible party: Frauenkirche Dresden
