Historical Walking Tour: Travel back in time, and immerse yourself in the history and culture of Dresden. Hear facts and stories from your experienced and licensed tour guide, who will bring the city's past back to life. Discover the dark times of the Middle Ages, the vigor of the Renaissance, and the grandeur of the Baroque. Explore the backgrounds of the Peaceful Revolution of 1989 and hear what it must have felt like to the people of former East and West Germany. The walking tour through the historic old town starts at Neumarkt. See Dresden's most famous attractions, including the Frauenkirche, the Semperoper, and the Baroque Zwinger.
