The spirit of August the Strong, Elector of Saxony and King of Poland, still frequently graces Dresden, wandering the city to oversee his cherished legacy. 

The solitude of his ghostly existence often makes him linger near the town hall, eagerly anticipating companionship of citizens or tourists who want to explore his city. 

August’s pride and vanity are palpable as he revels in showcasing the remarkable legacy he and his son have build in Dresden. 

Are you ready to embark on a journey with him?

We highly recommend the tour. We learned a lot of fun facts, saw all significant buildings and had a nice but not too long walk through Dresden. The tour was at our sweet spot of riddle solving (entertainment) and learning about Dresden's impressive history :)
