The light installations were beautiful with different music along the way. We had read that the gardens could be very busy but at 5pm on a Wednesday in December it was relatively empty. Towards the end a number of groups arrived but we weren’t hampered by them at all. The refreshment stalls halfway around the route became busy but we waited until the end and didn’t need to queue. An excellent evening.

Super interesting. You experience the history of Dresden in a different way than it is in the travel guide. Small details that you would otherwise never have noticed and/or experienced. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to hear the story from the night watchman's point of view.

I can only recommend the tour. Very interesting and very funny. I only have one small thing to complain about, they don't ask who is part of the tour, so the voucher isn't checked, it just turned out to be quite unfair to our tour for the 15 euros.

If you are Dresden during Christmas time. This is a must see. You can walk around with mulled wine and food and it’s all at a good price.

My wife and I love the river cruise, the food and the musical entertainment. Everything worked out.
