Description

Dresden has produced some of the world's most splendid works of art, sculpture and architecture and you can now visit its top attractions on a full-day trip from Berlin! Discover the city’s royal heritage, outstanding religious architecture, and restored historic buildings that testify to Dresden’s reputation as “Florence on the Elbe”. Let us take you on an adventure! Your 10-hour tour will begin with a convenient pickup from your accommodation. We will organize an Experienced Driver and a private vehicle for your round-trip transfer from Berlin. Upon arrival in Dresden, you will meet a Local Guide who knows the must-see sights and hidden gems of the Old Town, along with plenty of historical facts and cultural anecdotes about this “Jewel Box” city. The walking tour will begin at the historic Schlossplatz Square, which features amazing buildings such as the Stallhof with its classical pillars and the famous Procession of Princes mural. Step inside the imposing Dresden Cathedral (Hofkirche) to see the old High Altar and 18th-century sculptures and allegories. Follow your Private Guide to the lavish opera house Semperoper and enter the courtyard of the majestic Zwinger Palace to admire its extraordinary Baroque architecture and gardens. See also the 400-year-old Dresden Castle, a restored royal palace of the Alberine House of Wettin and Kings of Poland. Take a stroll to the Old Market Square to hear amazing stories from medieval times, see the Town Hall and the towering Holy Cross Church, then visit the New Market Square. Admire the beautifully restored city center and step inside its prized jewel - the magnificent Frauenkirche, whose remarkable reconstruction began after the reunification of Germany. Finally, enjoy a walk along Brühl's Terrace, also known as “The Balcony of Europe,” along the Elbe. At the end of the guided tour, you will also have free time to explore on your own, do souvenir shopping or dine at one of Dresden’s many trendy restaurants.
