Even as a Dresdener, the tour was very informative and entertaining. The guide passed on knowledge in an absolutely interesting and amusing way. Both history and cutting-edge topics were taken up and the new town was presented very well, including places that you have never seen before. In any case, we took a lot with us and can recommend the tour without reservation.

The night watchman of the city of Dresden gave us a brief commentary and guided us through Dresden at night. Very interesting information brought us closer to baroque Dresden. We will explore this part of the city individually on another visit. The night guard is brilliant. Many thanks for an unforgettable city tour to the committed, lovable, funny and charming night watchman! We will be back.

You learned something different from Dresden than just standing there and that with a lot of humor from the night watchman. From its cultural side, the baroque quarter doesn’t have to hide because, in my opinion, it can clearly keep up with the "old town". The nice thing about this tour is that you discover places that you don't expect from the new town. therefore only my recommendation applies here for this tour you have to experience it once.
