27 Aug Single-Day Trip: Dresden
As well as being one of the greenest cities in Europe, it has some 13,000 listed cultural monuments and is thus crammed with history! Dresden has a lot to offer: From the immaculately restored Old Town, including the famous Church of Our Lady, the Semper Opera House, the ‘Balcony of Europe’ – once Dresden’s defensive rampart on the River Elbe, and the Zwinger Palace, a medieval fortress that houses the Old Masters Gallery, featuring works by Raphael, Rembrandt, Rubens and others, to the Art Courtyard Passage, a site of creative and colorful activity in Dresden’s student district in the new town which should not be missed when visiting Dresden.
On this tour, find out about Dresden through the ages: from the time of Augustus the Strong, the ruler of Saxony who gathered many architects and painters in his residential city, on to the horrors of wartime with the vast destruction of the inner city, the Communist era and of course the vibrant and bustling city of today. There will be time to visit the world-class museums, relax on the waterfront, or stroll through the flea market.
