Full description
Enjoy 2 of Dresden's must-do activities - the hop-on-hop-off bus tour and the virtual reality experience "Fortress Experience" - at an attractive combined price. Discover Dresden with a 1-day ticket and get to know the city during the bus tour including 22 different stops. Start the tour at the first stop of the Hop On Hop Off where you will exchange your voucher. Your 1-day ticket also includes a night watchman walking tour, an old town walking tour and transport to the castle and park in Pillnitz, all from the same central meeting point location: Postplatz/Kronentor Zwinger. If you find that you run out of time to see and do everything included with your ticket, you can choose to extend the hop-on-hop-off ticket for a further day once you arrive (for €2 extra, not included) and thus extend all of the inclusions listed above. With the ticket to the virtual reality experience Fortress Xperience, you encounter an adventurous journey through time through 450 years of Dresden's eventful history: Celebrations. Dramas. Disasters. The secrets of Dresden Fortress are brought to life with breathtaking 360-degree projections and 3D sound technology. You can expect a completely new range of experiences on 1,500m², right in the heart of Dresden's old town.  FestungXperience is an approximately one-hour format with content and emotional demands, which is why the visit is recommended for children from 12 years and not allowed for children younger than 8.

It was a really great day FortressXperience was not what I expected. But it's also a matter of taste. The bus ride was great. We saw and learned a lot. That you can get out and back in at any time is great.

It was a nice city tour. The exhibition under the Brühlsche Terraces was gigantic, a unique experience

August 18, 2020

Doesn't need to be repeated. Ticket booked in advance and we still had to queue with a lady who handed over the ticket. Not up-to-date. In addition, she always explained to the people who were before us which tours and possibilities there are to explore Dresden. What does that have to do with ticketing? Waste of time, so we missed a bus.
