From Prague: Guided Dresden Day Trip with Lunch

3. From Prague: Guided Dresden Day Trip with Lunch

Explore the most spectacular Baroque city in Germany on this day trip to Dresden from Prague. Discover the historic sites in a city once called the “Florence of the North” with an English-speaking guide. Visit the terrific Frauenkirche church, the renowned Dresden Cathedral, and the world-famous Zwinger museum complex. Choose to begin your trip either at the meeting point or at your hotel in Prague. Set off early in the morning and arrive in Dresden approximately 2 hours later. First, make your way to the stunning Bruhl’s Terrace, sometimes called the “Balcony of Europe.” From the terrace, look across the River Elbe and see the historic architecture lining the streets of Dresden Neustadt. After a cup of coffee and a famous local dessert in a renowned local café, visit the breathtaking Frauenkirche church, badly damaged during World War II and recently fully restored. Then, admire the ingenious Furstenzug — The Procession of Princes. As it stands over 10 metres tall, you’ll need to crane your neck to take in the detailed artwork. The next stop will be at Dresden Cathedral, whose façade is covered with intricate sculptures and reliefs. After walking through the doors, marvel as your eyes are drawn immediately to a large painting of Jesus Christ ascending to the sky. The inside of the cathedral also includes a stone pulpit and the tombs of former Saxon sovereigns. After exploring the cathedral, stop for a traditional German lunch in a cozy local restaurant. Finish your tour of Dresden by visiting the Zwinger museums and admiring the art and amazing porcelain. Finally, head back to Prague, where you should arrive around 7 PM.

What people are saying about Dresden Old Town

The food was excellent in the Freiberg Schankhaus. The staff was really nice. We liked the fact that the meeting point with the night watchman took place less than 2 hours later at another meeting point 400 m away. We were so accepted that we were very grateful for a short walk to the meeting point. The night watchman tour was interesting and fun. We spent almost two hours on the road, saw a lot and heard many interesting stories from our night watchman Gerold. Since all the sights are close to each other, attending them is not a problem at all for people who are not good at walking. All in all, a successful, great thing

Very fun and informative tour with original gages. We had a lot of fun and can only recommend it. The food (sauerbraten with dumplings) was not a hit in terms of taste. The staff but very attentive and nice.

The tour with the night watchman Gerold was super amusing. There were many stories and stories about Dresden, nicely packaged and presented.
