Full description
Your tour will begin at the first station, which is located at the Spiegelkabinett. Here you will get dressed as various Baroque characters, with the fun help of a few magic mirrors that work with augmented-reality technology. You will then enjoy a thrilling presentation with accompanying information around the life and regency of August the Strong at the first station. The next station is the so called "Lichtspielhof", where you will see some short films revolving around life at court. The highlight of your visit is the virtual reality (VR) experience, which you will experience at your third station. Via virtual reality technology, you can go back in time to the year 1719. You will get an impression of life in Dresden's suburbs as a guest of one of the biggest and most spectacular weddings of all time, the marriage of Friedrich August III and Maria Josepha inside the Dresden Zwinger.

My friend's idea was super awesome! When we arrived at the service point, it was quite full, but with our Get your guide ticket we were given a corresponding time window and so we were able to walk through the second attempt without having to queue. There is a small introduction for the group (approx. 20 people) on the topic and is then led to the carriages. The experience (for the first time for me) of VR technology is impressive! I was so impressed with the details that were considered! Great! Any time!

You have to have seen / done

Expectations due to advertising were high. The staff very friendly. The attractions mirror hall and video room were quite good to get used to. In the virtual carriage ride, the technology was partially broken. Nice experience to be in the middle of it. The animation could be even higher resolution (somewhat pixelated) and more different types of extras (clothing, appearance) would be nice. Conclusion: You have to have seen it.
