wirklich tolle Führung mit unser wunderbaren nachtwaechterin (ich glaube Wahl mit Nachnamen) - originell, interessant. für unsere 11 jährigen Zwillinge und 14j. Teenager war es etwas zu lang, aber sie fanden es insgesamt auch toll. viele interessante Geschichten für erstmalige Dresdenbesucher - absolut zu empfehlen.

The night watchman tour was just right for me and my two older children (13/14 y.). The name of the night watchman was Klaus. He accompanied his remarks with amusing episodes from the baroque era in Dresden. So it was very entertaining and a nice transition to the panometer, which we visited the next day.

Our guide Klaus made the tour a real experience with a lot of commitment, very good detailed knowledge and a lot of personal humor! The old town of DD at night is something special again and we took new and interesting things with us, which we repeated the next day in DD and recalled to our minds.

There was a lot of new information packed with a lot of humor and fun. The tour even went longer than advertised, we really enjoyed the tour. We particularly liked the fact that dogs were not only allowed to come, but that our little 4-legged friend was very happy ☺️❤️ Gladly again.

Sehr informative und kurzweilige Nachtwächter Tour mit vielen Interessanten Informationen. Hatten mit Klaus einen super tollen Abend.
