DenkRaum Sophienkirche

The former Sophienkirche was a sacred building not far from the Zwinger and shaped the history of the country and the city for centuries. It originated as a church of the Franciscan monastery and later became a Protestant court church and cathedral church. Allied bombers turned the Sophienkirche into ruin on 13 February 1945. At the time of its demolition in 1962 and 1963, it was the only Gothic church in the city of Dresden preserved in its basic substance. Today, the architecturally abstracted, newly built Busmann Chapel, a spectacular large-scale walk-in sculpture, reminds us of them. With its exhibition, it is a lively place for dealing with Dresden's history and commemoration, but also a forum for uncovering the historical roots of pressing contemporary issues.
