Even as a Dresdener, the tour was very informative and entertaining. The guide passed on knowledge in an absolutely interesting and amusing way. Both history and cutting-edge topics were taken up and the new town was presented very well, including places that you have never seen before. In any case, we took a lot with us and can recommend the tour without reservation.

We really enjoyed the night watchman tour! We were surprised what there is to marvel at in Neustadt. The night watchman was great. He did great! It is highly recommended to anyone who would like to get to know Dresden in a different way!
