Dresden by itself is a rare jewel with an engrossing history and a phoenix like story. A walking tour is essential to do it justice. But a walking tour is just the bare minimum, for to visit Dresden without experiencing its cultural aspects is to miss a remarkable opportunity. Allow me to guide you through one of it's world class museums. You can choose between the collections in the Royal Palace and The Old Masters Picture Gallery. The best way to see Dresden in satisfying detail without being overwhelmed. This is a 'must do' tour!
