What to Expect
Marvel at the sights of Dresden, a baroque pearl on the River Elbe, famous for the beauty of its historic center and world renowned museums, and for its dark history. Learn how it was changed forever by the monumental events that reached their terrible climax in February 1945. Hear about the changes the Cold War brought about in the following 55 years.

Investigate how Germany became enthralled by the charismatic but catastrophic leadership of Adolf Hitler. Your guide will describe the gripping but perplexing chain of events from a human perspective. Explore the psychology behind the facts, and change your perception of history.

Along the way, see sites such as Brühl's Terrace, once nicknamed “The Balcony of Europe” for its long views of the River Elbe. Go to Schloßplatz, where a paving stone marks the spot where Napoleon set off for the Battle of Dresden in August 1813. See some of the city’s most important landmarks in Theaterplatz, including the Zwinger Palace and Semper Opera House.

Continue to the large market square of Altmarkt, and admire the baroque reconstructions of Neumarkt, before going to see the “stone bell” dome of the Frauenkirche, symbol of the post-war reconciliation.
