Full description

Discover the historic city of Dresden on a guided walking tour and visit the iconic Frauenkirche. Enjoy a guided tour of the elegant Dresden Zwinger gardens and see where royalty once lived on a tour of Dresden Castle. Explore the history of music on a tour of the Semperoper opera house. 

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 guided tour. Learn the history behind each turn as you tour the magnificent rooms.

Natalie is a woman with a lot of charm who has experienced the history of Dresden up close (especially the reconstruction). Everything she tells is authentic and makes sense, and with a joke here and there she loosens up the story and makes sure that you can remember it really well and really take something away from the tour. We had the Semperoper tour afterwards and it's more than worth the money. Within 3 hours you have seen everything important from Dresden. Would book again and again! Don't think twice, just book :) (and no, that's not paid advertising, but absolute conviction through the competence of the guide).

A super nice and above all cool guide with humor and always a saying in stock :-) Very entertaining tour, although actually very long, because it was just exciting. Her Slavic dialect only made her more likeable. We saw the most important sights and they were all explained in a comprehensible way + from time to time short anecdotes that loosened up the whole thing in addition to the history. Pure recommendation.

We had a super competent, witty, humorous, likeable and empathetic city guide with Mrs. Nathalie Blau. Unfortunately, due to a wedding mass, we were not able to visit the Liebfrauenkirche with her and benefit from her wealth of knowledge. The tour of the Semperoper with Ms. Saskia was also very impressive and enriching.
