Even if you're not an opera lover, it's still worth taking part in a guided tour of the Semperoper. The story behind it is very interesting, but most of all this beautiful architecture. I was totally blown away by the residential palace: impressive rooms and great exhibitions.

Visiting the opera was an experience. Unfortunately, we still wanted to go into the castle, but you absolutely had to break in that day. In any case, GET YOUR GUIDE is available 24 hours a day and will be happy to help with questions and problems.

The tour was really interesting and everything was super organized. We were even allowed to sit in the VIP box at the opera.

Everything went fine. Also with the exchange for the right tickets in Dresden Highly recommended

We ran the attractions on two different days. Both were very nice.
