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 :)

Ich hätte mir auch deutsche Sprache gewünscht. Beschreibungen komisch sortiert. Aufforderung zum Weitergehen vor Beschreibung der vorherigen Station.
