Full description

Discover the historic city of Dresden on a guided walking tour and visit the iconic Frauenkirche. Enjoy a guided tour of the elegant Dresden Zwinger gardens and see where royalty once lived on a tour of Dresden Castle. Explore the history of music on a tour of the Semperoper opera house. 

Begin your trip at Dresden Castle and head to the most famous landmark of the entire city: Frauenkirche. Marvel at the elaborately restored church from the outside and have a look at its splendid interior.

Continue to the Procession of Princes, a crucial part of Saxon history, and to the Stables Courtyard of Dresden Castle. Get an idea of what these impressive buildings look like inside and see the Taschenbergpalais.

Undoubtedly, a walking tour through Dresden would not be the same without seeing the Zwinger. Hear interesting and entertaining stories about Augustus II the Strong, before the tour ends at the theater square with its cathedral.

Next, explore the famous Semperoper, the Saxon State Opera, and court opera, on a guided tour. Learn the history behind each turn as you tour the magnificent rooms.

Ms. Blau took us on an entertaining tour of the old town of Dresden, including a guided tour of the Semperoper. Ms. Blau was very informative and entertaining. Just not so stiff and still with style. The tour was definitely worth the money and you get a lot of information about the background and history of the sights.

The walking tour of the old town was beautiful and insightful. We saw a lot and it was a relaxed, nice tour. The guide puts his heart and soul into it. The opera could not be visited as planned because rehearsals were taking place. The guide tried to arrange an evening tour and that worked out well. Thanks for that.

The meeting point was very easy to find, the tour guides were very friendly, competent and cheerful. The sights were well chosen and the timing was very good. If the weather cooperates, as it did here (you have no control over it), the entire event was a great success! Thanks very much! I can recommend this event!
