Overview

Embark on a trip from Berlin to the stunning city of Dresden – the royal residence of the Saxon kings. The city named ‘The Pearl of the Baroque’ due to its artistic splendour is considered one of the most beautiful places in Germany. 

Explore the restored Old Town – a remarkable achievement after the Allied bombers dropped 3,900 tonnes of incendiary bombs for three days in 1945 destroying 13 square miles of the city. Admire the Church of Our Lady, the Semper Opera House, the ‘Balcony of Europe’ and the Zwinger medieval fortress – home to Old Masters Collection.

All the while, your guide will tell you tales of experience during the Communist and wartime era and stories of August the Strong who fathered 300 illegitimate children. 

Enjoy free time where you can explore the world-class museums, chill out by the stunning waterfront or wander through the flea market to hunt some bargains.
