Dresden: 1-Day Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus, Panometer Entry & More

1. Dresden: 1-Day Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus, Panometer Entry & More

Enjoy 2 of Dresden's must-do activities - the hop-on-hop-off bus tour and the Panometer Dresden - at an attractive combined price. Discover Dresden with a 1-day ticket and get to know the city during the bus tour including 22 different stops. Your 1-day ticket also includes a night watchman walking tour, an old town walking tour and transport to the castle and park in Pillnitz, all from the same central meeting point location. If you find that you run out of time to see and do everything included with your ticket, you can choose to extend the hop-on-hop-off ticket for a further day once you arrive (for €2 extra, not included) and thus extend all of the inclusions listed above. The Panometer Dresden also offers a great insight into the city. Embark on a journey through time into the history of Dresden and get to know the city as a 360-degree panorama exhibition. Until summer 2020, experience Dresden immediately after the 1945 bombings.

From Berlin: Private Guided Day Trip to Dresden

2. From Berlin: Private Guided Day Trip to Dresden

Dresden is the capital of the German state of Saxony. It was the heart of the Wettin monarchy – a bastion of culture and architectural splendour in the north-east of Germany. The city also became notorious during the Second World War as the victim of savage Allied fire-bombing raids in February of 1945, which effectively wiped the city centre off the map. You will be met by your guide (experienced in leading tours in both Berlin and Dresden) at your hotel in Berlin. From there, you will either travel with a private car, or public transportation, to the city of Dresden. Your guide will provide a commentary of any sites of significance you pass, and also background information to prepare you for your visit to the Saxon capital. When you reach Dresden it’s time for a walking tour of the city centre. Prepare to explore the stunning gardens, colonnades and courtyards of the Versailles-inspired Zwinger buildings, and visit the part-Renaissance, part-Baroque Semper Opera House – one of the city’s cultural gems. Stand in awe of Dresden Castle, with its fairytale towers and crenellations and visit the Saxon Court Church where, legend states, the heart of Augustus the Strong – legendary ruler of Saxony – still beats. You will also walk the length of the Procession of the Princes, a dramatic mural depicting Saxon rulers through the ages, climb up to the dome of the Frauenkirche – Dresden’s most treasured monument, painstakingly reconstructed after it was destroyed in Allied bombing raids in WWII – and more… After the tour of the city you will have some time to explore more of Dresden on your own. Why not visit world-renowned porcelain manufacturer Meissen at one of their flagship stores, the Museum of Military History (widely considered the finest of its kind in Germany), or Pfunds Molkerei – self-proclaimed most beautiful dairy shop in the world? Your guide will be happy to provide more recommendations, and we are also more than happy to organise restaurant or museum/gallery reservations. At the end of the Dresden portion of the excursion you will be go back to Berlin and your hotel.

Unfortunately, I cannot give this booking a very good rating. If you offer a combination ticket - Pano Meter plus city tour - you should also go to the Pano Meter. The small detour is very small, but would bring significant added value. We believe that nobody would mind if the ticket costs two euros more. Maybe that can be changed, because not every tourist understands the tariff conditions of the Dresden public transport company. And in the vehicles you can only pay with small change...
