Full description
Meet your guide at the Golden Rider, where your off-the-beaten-track tour will begin. The Baroque quarter of Dresden is the essence of old Dresden: it's a historic district with many lovingly-restored passages, courtyards, and alleys. Enjoy a guided walk exploring the well-preserved architecture through the narrow streets and romantic courtyards of this neighborhood. Let yourself be carried away by the entertaining stories that your night watchman will tell you and learn more about the transformation of Dresden from the former Altendresden to the inner city of Neustadt. Complete your tour at the Cannalettoblicke, where you can admire the view to the other Elbseite of the old town, which is truly an unforgettable sight.

You learned something different from Dresden than just standing there and that with a lot of humor from the night watchman. From its cultural side, the baroque quarter doesn’t have to hide because, in my opinion, it can clearly keep up with the "old town". The nice thing about this tour is that you discover places that you don't expect from the new town. therefore only my recommendation applies here for this tour you have to experience it once.

The night watchman guided us through his neighborhood with a lot of humor and - above all - historical knowledge. This made the tour very entertaining and a lot of fun. After that we were very well informed and have a different view of the less known and at least as attractive Old Dresden.

Der Nachtwächter der Stadt Dresden hat uns kurzweilig kommentierend durch das nächtliche Dresden geführt. Sehr interessante Informationen brachten uns das barocke Dresden näher. Wir werden diesen Stadtteil bei einem weiteren Besuch individuell erkunden. Der Nachtwächter ist brillant. Vielen herzlichen Dank für eine unvergessliche Stadtführung an den engagierten, liebenswerten, witzigen und charmanten Nachtwächter! Wir kommen wieder.
