V. " and our German national "Bundesverband der Gästeführer in Deutschland e. V. ". As president of "IG Guides Dresden-Elbland" I share my expertise with our very passionate fellow-guides.
I also guide in whole East Germany: Colditz, Bautzen, Gorlitz, Wittenberg, Weimar, Naumburg, and e. g. thematic Luther-Bach-Goethe tours.
I graduated from university with diploma in History, Anglistics and Germanistics. However, I am well known as a humorous tourist guide from whose rich knowledge of local events in the present and past and lots of historical anecdotes you will be impressed and never bored! You will learn as much about "History" as about "Herstory" and what "Anglo-Saxon" and "Dollar" has to do with Saxony. Curious? Soon you will get the answer!
I would be glad to guide you on compact city tours, day trips, 3-day excursions or even as a tour operator - accompanying your tour completely. Dresden, the splendid residential baroque capital of Saxony, is exactly on the axe Berlin-Prague, heart of Central Europe. You can book me as a guide commenting the way between these two cities. Nazi History, Communist Epoch, Peaceful Revolution - thrilling information on the way.
A Recent Review of this guide
Our two hour tour of Leipzig with Silvia was just what we were looking for, and we capped it off with a beautiful service of music at the Thomaskirche following a delicious lunch at Auerbachs Keller, one of the oldest in the city that gained its worldwide reputation thanks to Johann Wolfgang Goethe. Silvia took us to selected locales throughout the old town, quaint alleyways and a memorable view of the city from far above, and introduced us to the beauty of its literature, music and art. A must see city.
