The tour was simply the best! I'd definitely recommend it.

Everyone and their grandmother went with their box of envelopes over to the Wackerbarth castle on April 14, 2012. All of us were excited and curious about this tour. We weren't disappointed- on the contrary! In each of the envelopes cards were hidden containing lots of information worth knowing encrypted in descriptions of the sites. Even the grandchildren (ours are 11 and 5) had a lot of fun solving the little puzzles. The walking tour is very well-chosen. We had a picnic on the Bismarck Tower, where we had a fantastic view of Radebeul, Dresden, and the surrounding area. We also went into two wine taverns and enjoyed the taste of some local wines. We'll take this tour again with friends from other parts of Germany and we'll definitely recommend it. Keep up the good work!!!
