Dresden Walking Tour Old Town
1.5-2h walk of the Old Town of Dresden, in afternoons during summer

This is a fantastic whistle-stop tour of Dresden Old Town that’s particularly well-suited for visitors who are short on time and want to see the city’s top historic sites. You will get the most out of your experience by having a guide to give you historical background information, as you traverse Dresden’s iconic plazas and boulevards. Stops include Theater Square, The Royal Palace, and The Zwinger.

What to Expect

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. There will be plenty of regal sites to see, including; The Royal Cathedral, The Royal Palace, and The Royal Mews, which contains a mural depicting a parade of rulers known as the ‘Procession of Princes’.

You’ll see The Church of Our Lady and also the lively Theater Square, which is full of monuments and museums. Another highlight is The Zwinger—a beautiful baroque-style palace. This is a fantastic, action-packed tour, which gives a glimpse into Dresden’s fascinating past, and how the city rebuilt itself.

No guide appears for our tour

Worthy tour

This tour gave us an overview of the history of Dresden -- done by a woman who was extremely knowledgeable. She really knew her stuff, and could answer just about any question. We were really glad we did this as a first thing in Dresden....More

It's a 20-minute walk from the train station to the tour's start in Schlossplatz Square, according to Google Maps. If you're quick walkers, it's doable.
