Meet your guide at the Golden Rider, where your off-the-beaten-track tour will begin. The Baroque quarter of Dresden is the essence of old Dresden: it's a historic district with many lovingly-restored passages, courtyards, and alleys. Enjoy a guided walk exploring the well-preserved architecture through the narrow streets and romantic courtyards of this neighborhood. Let yourself be carried away by the entertaining stories that your night watchman will tell you and learn more about the transformation of Dresden from the former Altendresden to the inner city of Neustadt. Complete your tour at the Cannalettoblicke, where you can admire the view to the other Elbseite of the old town, which is truly an unforgettable sight.

You learned something different from Dresden than just standing there and that with a lot of humor from the night watchman. From its cultural side, the baroque quarter doesn’t have to hide because, in my opinion, it can clearly keep up with the "old town". The nice thing about this tour is that you discover places that you don't expect from the new town. therefore only my recommendation applies here for this tour you have to experience it once.

Really a great idea! With the secret scavenger hunt you get to know the city in a completely different way than when you walk through the city. You pay a lot of attention because you want to collect points and stars! And by the way, you also learn something about the sights, both the obvious ones like the Frauenkirche and the hidden ones like the Napoleon stone. There should be a scavenger hunt like this in every city!!

The night watchman of the city of Dresden gave us a brief commentary and guided us through Dresden at night. Very interesting information brought us closer to baroque Dresden. We will explore this part of the city individually on another visit. The night guard is brilliant. Many thanks for an unforgettable city tour to the committed, lovable, funny and charming night watchman! We will be back.

We were very enthusiastic about the 1 1/2 hour night watchman tour through Dresden's Neustadt. You really got to know many corners of Neustadt that you didn't know about before. The night watchman conveyed a lot of information in a very funny way, great fun listening to him.

great tour During Corona that was really a highlight. I really discovered a lot of new things. What I liked best was that I suddenly saw things that I had never noticed before in Dresden... And the scavenger hunt is pretty cool too.
