Full description
Discover Dresden's New Town together with your children and learn more about the city in a creative and flexible way. Find out all about this beautiful city on a fun tour for the whole family. This is how the Scavenger Hunt tour works: The box contains 11 sealed numbered envelopes, each of it with another hint to help you sleuth your way through Dresden's new town. After solving the puzzle, you get the number of the next envelope that has to be opened. The order for opening the envelopes is not known in advance. At every single point of interest you will also get some detailed background information about the surrounding sights. Decide for yourself when to start, where and for how long to stay. Let yourself go on an enigmatic and extraordinary tour. You can always take a break or continue your scavenger hunt on another day of your choice. There are numerous cafes and restaurants along the way, inviting you to linger when tired. Experience the scene and cultural district in a fun and extraordinary way. Look forward to an adventure for friends or the whole family! The following sights await you on your tour: The tour leads you through the outer and inner quarters of the new town, just opposite the wonderful old town of Dresden. The inner quarter of the new town offers beautiful sights such as the Goldener Reiter and the Baroque quarter around Königstraße. Dare to climb on the tower of the Dreikönigskirche. From above you can enjoy a wonderful view over the old town of Dresden. But also the outer quarter of the new town is worth a visit. Mainly known as the trendy district with its innumerable pubs, the outer quarter is also home to the Pfunds Diary - probably the most beautiful milk shop in the world. The Kunsthof Passage with its unique courtyards designed according to themes will also captivate the visitor. In addition, there are a variety of small and unusual shops to discover during your tour. Experience the slightly different way of life of the inhabitants of Dresden and be enchanted by the flair of the district. Take a break whenever you like at one of many cafés, pubs and restaurants along the way. Starting point of the tour is the Albertplatz and your tour ends at Alaunpark.

Tolles Event!

Der Tag hat richtig Spaß gemacht! Die 5jährige war die ganze Zeit gut dabei, die Erwachsenen entdeckten unbekannte wunderschöne Ecken, obwohl sie Dresdener sind und der Satz „Hier müssen wir nochmal her“ kam mehrmals. Auch das graue Nieselwetter konnte uns den Spaß nicht verderben. Nur die empfohlenen Spielplätze kamen deshalb etwas kurz weg. Rundherum ein gelungener Tag. Sehr zu empfehlen!

Hat viel Spaß gemacht

Wir haben das Paket abgeholt, das hat super geklappt. Es gab auch noch eine Erklärung dazu. Ansonsten erklärt es sich auch fast von selbst. Die Karten sind super aufgebaut. Es gibt eine Rätselkarte auf der auch immer die vorherige Station steht, so dass man immer weiß ob man noch in der korrekten Reihenfolge ist. Dann gibt es eine zweite Karte die zur jeweiligen Sehenswürdigkeit eine Erklärung abgibt. Das war sehr praktisch. Allerdings sind die Texte nicht kindgerecht, es liest sich ziemlich trocken. Wir haben versucht es dann in eigene Worte zu packen. Das ist aber der einzige Kritikpunkt. Wir würden das immer wieder machen. Dadurch wird man auf eine Art und Weise durch die Stadt geführt, wie man es selbst nie gemacht hätte. Es war eine superschöne Tour. Die Kinder haben kein einziges Mal genörgelt. Wir haben uns Zeit gelassen und sind an manchen Orten einfach mal auf einen Kaffee geblieben. Die Neustadt ist wundervoll. Tipp: Besichtigung jüdischer Friedhof vorher vereinbaren!

Wir hatten mit den Kindern viel Spaß. Die Abkühlungen unterwegs waren sehr hilfreich bei der gestrigen Hitze. Wir haben uns mehr Trinkwasserstellen gewünscht, um genügend Wasser zu haben.
