Full description

Discover the historic city of Dresden on a walking tour and see iconic buildings like Frauenkirche. Continue to the Semperoper for a guided tour of this impressive Opera.

Begin your trip at Dresden Castle and head to the most famous landmark of the entire city: Frauenkirche. Marvel at the elaborately restored church from the outside and have a look at its splendid interior.

Continue to the Procession of Princes, a crucial part of Saxon history, and to the Stables Courtyard of Dresden Castle. Get an idea of what these impressive buildings look like inside and see the Taschenbergpalais.

Undoubtedly, a walking tour through Dresden would not be the same without seeing the Zwinger. Hear interesting and entertaining stories about Augustus II the Strong, before the tour ends at the theater square with its cathedral.

Next, explore the famous Semperoper, the Saxon State Opera, and court opera, on a 1-hour guided tour. Learn the history behind each turn as you tour the magnificent rooms.

Frau Blau nahm uns mit auf einen unterhaltsamen Rundgang durch die Altstadt von Dresden inklusive abschließender Führung in der Semperoper. Frau Blau war dabei sehr informativ und unterhaltsam. Einfach nicht so steif und trotzdem mit Stil. Der Rundgang war das Geld auf jedenfalls wert und man erhält sehr viele Informationen zu Hintergründen und Geschichte der Sehenswürdigkeiten.

Der Rundgang in der Altstadt war schön und aufschlussreich. Wir haben viel gesehen und es war eine lockere nette Führung. Der Guide ist mit Herz und Seele dabei. Die Oper konnte nicht wie geplant besichtigt werden weil Proben stattfanden. Der Guide hat sich um eine Abendführung bemüht und das hat auch gut geklappt. Danke dafür.

Der Treffpunkt war sehr leicht zu finden, die Tourführerinnen waren sehr freundlich, kompetent und gut gelaunt. Die Sehenswürdigkeiten waren gut ausgewählt und die Zeiteinteilung war sehr gut. Wenn dann noch das Wetter mitspielt, wie es bei uns war (da hat man ja keinen Einfluss drauf), ist das gesamte Event äußerst gelungen! Vielen Dank! Ich kann dieses Event weiterempfehlen!
