Heidi P.

Dresden, Saxony, Germany

Welcome to my hometown of Dresden- welcome to the "Florence of the North"!

Why should you book the tour with me? I am your real local guide for Dresden and I have always been living here in Dresden. Even before the reunification of Germany in 1990.
I'd like to share my passion of tour guiding, history and arts with you .
I am a fully licensed guide and I am holding all permits for guiding in all collections of the Dresden Art museums, places and parks in its outskirts
I was spoilt to be raised in a city where the flair of art and culture is lying in the air.

I have been living through different historic societies and participating in many historic events, like the re-opening of the Opera House in 1985 or the Consecration of the Frauenkirche in 2005. Based on all my experience I am now giving lectures on the reunification of Germany.

I have been travelling the world improving my language skills and getting to know different places, people and cultures. In addition I have obtained much experience in tourism working for 10 years work at a large international travel agency.

For more than 25 years I have been focusing on cultural tour-guiding, on specialized groups, like Luther tours or reformation and on tailor-made programms for my customers.

I have very good references and I really enjoy showing the guests around my place. I have passed all examinations at all State Art Collections in Dresden and I know my homeland - Saxony- very well.

It would be my pleasure to share all my experience with you and and to make you feel at home, here in Dresden.

Come and join my tour!
Yours faithfully, Heidi

A Recent Review of this guide

Heidi was able to add a wonderful tour of the Galshutte watch manufacturing center. The Center's tour guide made a very good presentation. Heidi took my pictures outside the center. Later, we went to the great fortress of Konigstein. The views of Saxon Switzerland were terrific. The tour of Pillnitz was very informative. Thanks to Heidi. I loved the steamboat ride back to Dresden. It was the icing on the cake. A great tour. Keith Bankwitz
