The ambivalent history of Dresden


History is always complex and ambivalent. So is the history of Dresden.
For many years we have been living the idea of reconciliation.
I have studied the Jewish history of Dresden and I would like to walk with you on the footpath of its history.
Not so many sites are left but nevertheless the history is still present.

Welcome to this tour!

A Recent Review of this tour

A phenomenal guide! Heidi was terrific. She is amazingly knowledgeable about the city she so clearly loves, she is able to bring it to life for her guests. She is able to convey a sense of life in the GDR, through reunification & the rebuilding of this beautiful city. It's truly incredible what has been accomplished in the last 30 years. She was able to accommodate our slower pace & yet help us see the important sites. Very well organized. Lots of photos to help you see the history. Highly recommended!!!
