    Frauenkirche, market square, the many historical buildings and the Albrechtsburg castle towering over the city with the cathedral form an incomparable ensemble. Take your time to explore the city and maybe stop at one or the other wine bar to taste the good Saxon wine.

    The Protestant Frauenkirche in the old town of Meißen is a late Gothic hall church. It belongs to the parish of St. Afra Meißen in the church district of Meißen-Großenhain of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Saxony.
    The first tunable and thus playable porcelain carillon in the world was installed in the tower in 1929 on the occasion of the 1000th anniversary of Meissen.
    The porcelain carillon consists of 37 bells and sounds every day at the following times:
    6:30 a.m .: Wake up, the voice calls us
    8:30 am: Great God, we praise you
    11:30 a.m .: The heavens boast of Eternal Glory
    2:30 p.m .: We come to pray
    5:30 p.m .: A solid castle is our God
    8:30 p.m .: Praise the Lord, the Mighty King
    ... from Wikepedia - Frauenkriche Meißen

    The Frauenkirche on the market has shaped the image of the city for more than 500 years. As early as 1205, a "Church of Our Lady" is mentioned in a document at its current location.

    The building, which is still visible today as a late Gothic hall church, was essentially built at the end of the 15th century. This means that the Frauenkirche Meißen is around 500 years older than its bigger sister in Dresden. As the oldest civic church in the city of Meissen, it is still important and valuable today for maintaining a lively city culture. Numerous cultural events and a lively community life take place in the historic walls, which house many art treasures. A special gem is the world's first playable glockenspiel made of Meissen porcelain, which plays various chorales over the city every day.

    The Protestant Frauenkirche in the old town of Meißen is a late Gothic hall church. It belongs to the parish of St. Afra Meißen in the church district of Meißen-Großenhain of the Evangelical Lutheran regional church of Saxony.
    Very interesting tower climb with a breathtaking view.
    You can climb the Frauenkirchturm every day without a guide. The key can be obtained for a small fee from "Meißen Tourist" on the adjacent market square. The 193 steps, some of which are narrow, lead to several plateaus past the porcelain bells, the huge bronze bells and the control equipment for the bells, as well as a small historical gallery.

    Every hour on the hour, the glockenspiel with the bells made of Meissner porcelain sounds - like in the Dresden Zwinger

    Beautiful church with an organ worth seeing. The tower can be climbed for a small fee. An insider tip.
