the ideal combination of city tour and museum

Let me introduce you to the diversity of Dresden. This day with me will give you a good overview - its history, art and how people live. Let me transport you into the past and see the vibrant life of present-day Dresden.

To see the variety of the different districts of Dresden and how and where people live we will take a car/taxi. We'll also see the Great Garden, the transparent Manufactory by VW, The Blue Wonder Bridge, the Elbe Palaces, the baroque New Town and the Golden Horseman.

Our walking tour will concentrate on the old town with the magnificent historical buildings. I will show you the Royal court quarter - e. g. the Zwinger, Opera House, Church of Our Lady, and Cathedral.

Finally we will enter the Royal Palace with its great art collections. It is also an impressive example of the difficult reconstruction after the war. The Turkish Chamber, Armoury and the Treasury have found their new home here and I will bring them alive for you.


It is a nice combination of a city tour by car for the overview, a leisurely walking tour in the historical city centre and a guided tour in the Royal Residence to see some of our impressive art collections.
