What to Expect
Join this fascinating day trip to Dresden aboard your coach hired just for this round trip to Dresden. Dresden was the royal residence of the Saxon Kings, who established a city of such cultural and artistic splendour it was named “The Pearl of the Baroque.” To this day it is still considered one of Germany's most beautiful cities.
During the tour you’ll explore the immaculately restored Old Town and Old Market, including the famous Church of Our Lady (Frauenkirche), the Semper Opera House, and the Balcony of Europe – once Dresden's defensive rampart on the River Elbe. You will also wander around the Zwinger medieval fortress – home to the Old Masters’ Collection featuring works by Raphael, Rembrandt, Rubens, and more.
During the tour, you will also learn about the Albertinum, Blue Wonder, Dresden Castle, Taschenberg Palace, and Procession of Princes. Walk by the Augustus Bridge, Brühl's Terrasse, New Market, and the New Synagogue.
Hear stories of Dresden at the time of August the Strong (who allegedly sired 300 children), emotional wartime experiences, and the Communist era. Discover the vibrant city of today, and enjoy free time to visit the world-class museums, relax on the waterfront, or stroll through the flea market.
