Maria am Wasser is an Evangelical Lutheran church in the Dresden district of Hosterwitz. With its appearance reminiscent of the South German sacred building of the Baroque, it is completely untypical for the Dresden region. The cemetery is one of the smallest cemeteries in the city with 1,500 square meters. The church Maria am Wasser and the churchyard are listed buildings and belonged as part of the cultural landscape Dresdner Elbtal from 2004 to 2009 to the UNESCO world heritage.Source and more at de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maria_am_Wasser

For the region Dresden rather atypical baroque church construction dates verm. From 1400 (1406 it is first mentioned in documents). Around 1200 there should have been a wooden church in this place.The popular today "wedding church" near Pillnitz stood in 2002, the flood of the century, several days about 2 meters in the water and could be re-deduced by help and donations in 2003.
