Neben dem Dom in Meißen ist sie gleichzeitig die Predigtkirche des Landesbischofs der Evangelisch-Lutherischen Landeskirche Sachsens.

    The impressive building of the Protestant Kreuzkirche is located on the southeast side of the Altmarkt. As the old town parish church, it has been closely linked to the fortunes of the city for centuries.
    The Kreuzkirche owes its name to a cross relic that came to Dresden in the 14th century. During the Seven Years' War with Prussia, the magnificent Renaissance church was destroyed in 1760 and rebuilt between 1764 and 1792 in classicist architecture. After a fire in 1897, the church received a modern interior design.
    During the air raids on Dresden in February 1945 the church was destroyed again - only the tower and the outer walls remained. The reconstruction took place in the years from 1946 to 1955. The outer building shell was restored in accordance with the monument, the interior was designed with emphasis on simple and without building plastic.
    The Kreuzkirche has been home to the Dresden Kreuzchor for almost 700 years. Important church music performances take place here regularly. In front of the church, on the Altmarkt, the traditional Dresden Striezelmarkt takes place at Christmas time. The 92 meter high tower on the monumental western front is open to visitors.
