Discover Dresden, the "Florence of the Elbe"

  • Dresden
  • Available in: Spanish

About the tour

The city of Dresden was born as a small medieval nucleus next to the Elbe river, which will have its climax during the Baroque in the 18th century. It will be the moment of splendor of the city, in which multiple buildings will be built and the court of the electing prince will receive internationally renowned artists, such as Juan Sebastian Bach. In the nineteenth century the city will become the capital of the kingdom of Saxony and one of the engines of industrial development in eastern Germany. Unfortunately, much of the old town of "the Florence of the Elbe" and its works of art will be destroyed by the catastrophic bombings of February 1945. During the times of the GDR and until today, the city rose from its ashes. Our tour begins in the Frauenkirche, the emblematic church of Dresden and a symbol of peace, which was rebuilt after the destruction of World War II. Then we will stroll through the terrace of Brühl - with beautiful views of the Elbe river -, we will admire the Dresden castle and the court church, and in front of the Fürstenzug we will know the history of the Wettin family, the family that reigns Saxony for 800 years. To finalize the tour, we will talk about the Dresden Opera and finish at the Zwinger, the pearl of the Saxon baroque.

El tour me parece técnicamente correcto pero dada la experiencia con otros tour, nos parecio un poco aburrido por su forma de transmitir.
