Stops on your private tour include the stunning Frauenkirche (“Church of Our Lady”), a Lutheran church that boasts one of the largest domes in Europe, as well as the spectacular Semperoper opera house, where famed composers Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss first presented their works to the public. You’ll also see the Zwinger palace gardens, a Rococo-style complex dating back to the early 1700s, and the Green Vault, which contains the largest treasure collection in Europe (inside on demand). And you’ll wander through Neumarkt, the city’s historic center that was almost completely destroyed in the Allied bombings of the Second World War. Your local guide will also lead you on a stroll along Elbufer, the beautiful northern banks of the Elbe River, for some gorgeous views of the Dresden skyline. Then, your private tour will take you through the Neustadt, or the “New City” of Dresden — although it’s not quite so “new.” This neighborhood has been around since the 1700s! You’ll explore this baroque area, stopping at sites like the Goldener Reiter (“Golden Rider”), which depicts King August the Strong, the Dreikönigskirche (“Three Kings’ Church”), which is a listed cultural monument, and Pfunds Dairy, which is “the most beautiful dairy shop in the world,” according to the Guinness Book of Records. You’ll also visit the surreal Kunsthofpassage, one of the most refreshingly artistic spaces in the Neustadt. This outdoor art exhibition featuring works like the famous funnel wall that turns rain into music. A visit inside the Panometer is also essential, with its 360-degree paintings by artist Yadegar Asisi that show the history of Dresden (on demand).

City Card is a recommendation because you can get through the entire city without stress. Just get on no matter what, bus or train and off you go. Plus more perks.

The Green Vault is definitely worth a visit, also interesting objects for young people.

The castle with its exhibitions is unique and can hardly be done in one day.

It was wonderful in Dresden, we'd love to come back
