    Of particular interest were the places in the Neustadt that would otherwise have remained unknown. The final route to the old town ending at the Frauenkirche rounds off the 100-minute tour. We took the tour as a family with two children (11 years old) who, due to the time of day, could no longer concentrate on the last few meters and were exhausting. We recommend the tour to anyone who would like to be carried away into the history of Dresden back to the 15th century.

    It was a very interesting guided tour with Klaus the night watchman. We learned a lot about Dresden and its history and all of our questions were answered. Lots of tips were given about the sights, which we implemented the next day. We really enjoyed the organ concert in the Frauenkirche. Thank you very much for the great tour.

    Es war eine sehr gute, lustige und informative Führung mit der Dame. Wir fanden es prima, abends durch Dresden in der Gruppe zu gehen und neue Dinge über diese schöne Stadt zu erfahren. Wir dachten, dass wir hauptsächlich etwas über die Hot Spots der Stadt erfahren, aber dem war weniger so. Es wurden einfach auch mal Orte gezeigt und Geschichten erzählt, die man nicht weiß und so sieht man alles auch mal von einer anderen Seite. Wirklich empfehlenswert!
