Top 5 attractions to see on a Dresden walking tour

Whether led by an expert or on your own self guided walking tour armed only with a tourist map, here are five delightful Dresden highlights to build any sightseeing checklist around!

Planning Your Visit

  • What about the New Town?

    All of the sights mentioned above feature prominently in Dresden Altstadt, or Old Town. The hipper Neustadt is better suited to seeking out cool cafés, bars, restaurants, and boutiques, but that doesn't mean there aren't a few landmarks suitable for walking tours. Our tips? Check out the Still Waters Fountain at Albertplatz and the Japanese Palace.

  • How do the free tours work?

    Visiting Dresden on a shoestring budget? Free walking tours are a great way to see the city for cheap. But remember, your guide does this for a living! Don't forget to bring some cash in order to pay what you think the tour was worth at the end.

A very worthwhile excursion! During the trip to Pillnitz Castle and the Bastei, the tour guide told many very interesting anecdotes, and some of them were very humorous. The tours in Park Pillnitz and at the Bastei were both at a comfortable pace. In both places you still had some free time to look around yourself. At the Schlosspark Pillnitz a few minutes too little for us, but at the bastion another three quarters of an hour was completely sufficient for us for our own tour. Luckily we caught a very sunny day and the bastion wasn't too crowded that day. On the way back there were a few more stories. Really very exciting and not overloaded. The price-performance ratio was very good here.

A very nice half day tour! Our guide Doris Wahl accompanied us through the excursion in an entertaining manner with her somewhat cheeky manner and provided us with a lot of information about Dresden, Pillnitz Castle and Saxon Switzerland. Personally, I had enough time both at Pillnitz Castle and at the Bastei bridge. Sure, a little more is always possible, but the tour is planned as a half-day excursion and the program is exactly as described. Both Pillnitz Castle and the Bastei are definitely worth a visit. Unfortunately we weren't that lucky with the weather, but you now know that it's worth coming back here - with a little more time, if necessary.

The explanation of all the sights during the bus tour by the tour guide was very interesting and well presented. It's just a shame that the time at Pillnitz Castle (20 minutes) and on the Bastei (60 minutes) is simply too short to go on a discovery tour yourself.

Unfortunately the weather was not as good as the tour. Well done and if interested in this particular aspect of events leading up to and after the Dresden Fire bombing then the tour is perfect for you. Thanks

very insightful. we probably spent a bit too much time in the opera house, and not enough time in the old city.
