Upon arrival at Dresden Hbf in about 2 hours, you are met by your private guide and embark on a 3-hour walking tour of Dresden, the splendid baroque capital of Saxony. On the walking city tour you are introduced to the Altstadt (Old Town) and Neustadt quarter. You start your tour from the Altstadt, which despite being destroyed in WW2, has now regained its unique attractiveness with the architectural masterpieces being restored. Walking through the Altstadt, the center of city life, you marvel at such outstanding buildings as the Semper Opera House, Church of Our Lady (Frauenkirche), Dresden Cathedral and the Zwinger Palace.

You then cross the Augustus Bridge to the quarter on the right banks of the Elbe - Neustadt. Here you see the Golden Horseman, the statue of Augustus the Strong (Elector of Saxony and King of Poland), and find out how Dresden became to be known as "Florence on the Elbe". You also explore the Hauptstrasse, the Baroque quarter and artisan arcades. After the tour, we recommend spending some free time exploring the bohemian quarter - Outer Neustadt. This quarter, with its narrow streets, became the center of alternative culture in Dresden, and is full of restaurants, bars and craft-art shops.
