Dresden is the capital of German Saxony, located on the Elbe River, just 20 km from the border with the Czech Republic. Dresden has contributed a lot to European culture, primarily with its striking architecture and the rich collections of paintings. Dresden Old Town is quite compact and set around the Theater Square with its wonderful Dresden Opera House in the very heart. Going to the left from the square will lead you to Zwinger, a Baroque style palace with an exhibition gallery while, going to the right, you will find Dresden Castle, a huge complex served as the residence of the electors and kings of Saxony....
  • Day By Day

    Day 8 - City tour of Dresden

    Following breakfast, meet your private guide and embark on a 3-hour walking tour of Dresden, the splendid baroque capital of Saxony. On the walking city tour, you are introduced to the Altstadt (Old Town) and Neustadt quarter. Despite being destroyed in WW2, it has now regained its unique attractiveness with the architectural masterpieces being restored. Walking through the Altstadt, the center of city life, you marvel at such outstanding buildings as the Semper Opera House, Church of Our Lady (Frauenkirche), Dresden Cathedral and the Zwinger Palace.

    You then cross the Augustus Bridge to the quarter on the right banks of the Elbe - Neustadt. Here you see the Golden Horseman, the statue of Augustus the Strong (Elector of Saxony and King of Poland), and find out how Dresden became to be known as "Florence on the Elbe". You also explore the Hauptstrasse, the Baroque quarter and artisan arcades.

    After the tour, you can continue the exploration of the city on your own. We recommend spending some free time exploring the bohemian quarter - Outer Neustadt. This quarter, with its narrow streets, became the center of alternative culture in Dresden and is full of restaurants, bars, and craft-art shops.

    Breakfast is included.
