Get to know the ancient pearl of European Baroque with a Free Walking Tour of Dresden, where you'll wander through the centre of a city hit by the Second World War.
Free Walking Tour Dresden
King John I of Saxony will welcome us from his pedestal at Theaterplatz, one of the most important squares in the capital of Saxony. The tour will start from the meeting point under the statue and in front of the famous opera Semper.
Here, we'll learn more about the Wettin dynasty that inspired the culture, architecture and art in this German city. We'll also admire the opera house's elegant facade, which was completely rebuilt after the bombings during World War II.
Our next stop will be Zwinger Palace, known worldwide as a true Baroque jewel. Surrounded by beautiful fountains and the scene of majestic royal parties, this building was built on a site where a fortress once stood. Following on, we'll see Dresden Palace, which houses the treasures of the Saxon monarchy.
The tour will continue through the old town to the Holy Trinity Cathedral, Hofkirche, the largest religious building in Saxony, and along a curious street where we'll come across the Fürstenzug. Did you know that this is the longest tiled mural in the world?
The tour will finish in front of the symbolic Church of Our Lady, Frauenkirche, a clear example of the reconstruction of the city after the devastation of the Great War.
