Full description

Discover two unique German places in one day. The bus will take you first to the beautiful castle of Moritzburg. Nestled between mysterious forests, rolling hills, and lovely lakes, the castle now serves as a museum and an enchanting backdrop for major Hollywood productions.

A guided tour awaits you at Moritzburg. Tour through magnificent rooms with valuable porcelain, paintings, and the legendary treasure of the Saxons. From here, continue to Meissen, the "cradle of Saxony", with its thousand-year history.

In Meissen, you can enjoy 2.5 hours of free time. Use the time to take an inside tour of the world-famous porcelain factory, or stroll with your tour guide through the medieval old town in the direction of the cathedral, and the oldest castle in Germany, the Albrechtsburg.

Afterward, you can enjoy a typical Saxon lunch in a restaurant of your choice (price not included). Departure from Meissen is at 2:30 PM. After an eventful day, we will reach Dresden again around 3 PM.

Wir hatten einen tollen Reisebegleiter: Gerold Jahn. Wir besuchten die Manufaktur Meissen inkl halbstündige Führung und haben darum auf die Stadtbesichtigung verzichtet. Wenn der Ausflug eine Stunde länger gedauert hätte, wären wir noch ins Städtchen (evtl Programm anpassen?). Hat für uns aber absolut gepasst.

Wir hatten einen guten Guide, der sehr viel wusste und gut weitergeben konnte...informativ aber auch kurzweilig und lustig.....denke damit fällt und steht eine Führung...Ausserdem sind das 2 Orte die für sich selbst sprechen....
