Full description
Explore the magnificent city of Dresden on two exiting adventures.

Begin in the daytime and experience the many fascinating sides of Dresden on a city tour in an original red double-decker bus. See the thoroughly restored historic old town, the Baroque new town, and Europe's largest late-19th-century district, the Äußere Neustadt. Visit one of the most beautiful dairies in the world, Pfunds Molkerei, and enjoy a little refreshment.

Get to know the Großer Garten park, the villa districts of Blasewitz and Loschwitz, home to the city's rich and famous, and of course the "Blue Wonder" bridge. Enjoy spectacular views of the city from the banks of the Elbe and the three Elbe Palaces.

At nightfall, visit Dresden's beautiful Old Town and follow the historical night watchman on his rounds. When dusk falls, the hour of the night watchman strikes. His horn rings in narrow alleys, the light of his lantern penetrates the darkness. With his halberd, he protects the honorable citizens from vagabonds and shady characters, even in the city's darkest corners. Look forward to an entertaining tour with spooky stories and juicy anecdotes from centuries past.

Along the way, get a closer look at the beautiful sights of the city. See the Semper Opera House and the famous Zwinger palace, walk over the royal palace square and get a glimpse of "The Balcony of Europe", Brühl's Terrace.
