    Bus tour takes you very nicely through Dresden, and not only in the inner city area, but also a little outside. There were a lot of buses on the way, so you could get off at any time, but don't have to wait long for the next one. Unfortunately, one route was not passable, which no one said when buying a ticket. The mask requirement was hardly paid attention to, which is of course counterproductive in a 'narrow' and full bus. Zwinger is easy to get to and definitely worth a visit! Unfortunately, the staff there is very unfriendly.

    Die Stadtrundfahrt hat Spaß gemacht, die Fahr Intervalle von einer halben Stunde sind in Ordnung. In Corona Zeiten gibt es keins gibt es kein Skip the Line. Beim Umtausch des Vouchers hat uns Manu, eine Angestellte bei Hop on Hop off Wirklich sehr gut mit Informationen weitergeholfen. Sowohl der Zwinger als auch das Schloss und das grüne Gewölbe sind sehr empfehlenswert. Wenn man einige Ausstellungen wirklich besuchen möchte, muss man allerdings schon 2-3 Stunden einplanen.

    Die Stadtrundfahrt war sehr informativ, alle Sehenswürdigkeiten gut erklärt. Negativ war jedoch, dass wir trotz der Vorabbuchung uns noch anstellen mußten, um das Ticket zu erhalten. Die Besichtigung der Gemäldegalerie blieb uns negativ in Erinnerung. Trotz Coronabeschränkungen war die Galerie viel zu voll, Dichtes Gedränge, viel zu warm und keine Luft. Dazu die Maskenpflicht. Warum wird in dieser Situation nicht die Besucherzahl begrenzt? Schade um das sonst schöne Erlebnisnichts
