Full description
Historical Walking Tour: Travel back in time, and immerse yourself in the history and culture of Dresden. Hear facts and stories from your experienced and licensed tour guide, who will bring the city's past back to life. Discover the dark times of the Middle Ages, the vigor of the Renaissance, and the grandeur of the Baroque. Explore the backgrounds of the Peaceful Revolution of 1989 and hear what it must have felt like to the people of former East and West Germany. The walking tour through the historic old town starts at Neumarkt. See Dresden's most famous attractions, including the Frauenkirche, the Semperoper, and the Baroque Zwinger. From Dresden Castle, head to Brühl's Terrace and the Procession of Princes and Stallhof, until you arrive at Dresden Cathedral. Then, follow your guide to the Taschenbergpalais and Augustus Bridge, before ending your walking tour near Frauenkirche. Chocolate Museum: Included with your tour is entry to Dresden's chocolate museum, which you can visit either before or after your walking tour. Dresden was known as Germany's "capital of chocolate" and is considered to be the place where milk chocolate was invented. From here it was exported worldwide. Experience this delicacy's fascinating history and what really good chocolate is all about. Learn surprising facts about the numerous chocolate factories in 19th-century Dresden. Discover one of the world's largest collections of chocolate moulds by Anton Reiche and trace the long path from cocoa bean to delicious chocolate.

    We had booked a city tour and our guide had a lot of information ready for us, which she conveyed in a lively and descriptive manner. Questions were also answered comprehensively and willingly. Thanks to the small "hearing aids", we were able to understand our guide well at all times and at the same time look at everything in peace. That was really good, because at the beginning I asked myself what do we actually need the parts for? The chocolate museum belonging to the booked tour was small but nice. We had booked the small chocolate museum, but I probably wouldn't have paid the €6 entrance fee for it.

    Highly recommended! We were traveling with a small group and the leader. All in all it was very informative and especially for the day of arrival in Dresden it was very good to do the tour first. So you could get a rough overview of Dresden's old town. We couldn't make it to the chocolate museum on the same day, but we were able to visit it 3 days later. There was still a chip for a free café, which we were able to redeem a few days later in the café in the department store, where the meeting point for the tour was also on the ground floor at the tourist information.

    The tour was fine. The tour lasted until about 6 p.m., after which a booked visit to the Chocolate Museum was planned. But it couldn't take place because the museum closed at 6 p.m. But the booking said 7pm. Hence the question: Would it be possible to get a refund for a visit to the museum, including a small meal? We have NEVER had any problems with getyourguide. Sincerely, Peter Mordhorst
