You learned something different from Dresden than just standing there and that with a lot of humor from the night watchman. From its cultural side, the baroque quarter doesn’t have to hide because, in my opinion, it can clearly keep up with the "old town". The nice thing about this tour is that you discover places that you don't expect from the new town. therefore only my recommendation applies here for this tour you have to experience it once.

We were very enthusiastic about the 1 1/2 hour night watchman tour through Dresden's Neustadt. You really got to know many corners of Neustadt that you didn't know about before. The night watchman conveyed a lot of information in a very funny way, great fun listening to him.

The night watchman loves and lives his role very authentically and gave us an amusing and informative evening - even though there were only two of us. So we could get to know Dresden from another side and would definitely do the tour again. Thanks for the great experience!

With this tour we came to hidden backyards with breathtaking flair, individual shops, bars and wine bars that we would never have found ourselves. A veteran of night watchmen made this tour a fun and educational discovery tour. Thanks a lot for this!

The night watchman is a funny fellow who brings his knowledge about the new town of Dresden in an interesting way. He showed us great places in winding alleys that we would never have discovered. We recommend!*****
