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
