After meeting your guide, your tour of the magical Old Town of Dresden begins. You’ll see a lot in a short space of time while learning about the impact WWII had, and how the city worked hard to reconstruct its historical monuments.

This is a fantastic, action-packed tour, which gives a glimpse into Dresden’s fascinating past, and how the city rebuilt itself.
