Royal Treasure Hunt – Once around Dresden
On this tour you’ll get the chance to visit many of the neighboring castles of Dresden and Meissen, starting off with the Moritzburger hunting- and pleasure lodge of August the Strong and the late baroque Pheasant Castle. Then you’ll travel to Meissen and walk along its cobblestone streets to visit the Albrechtsburg and the oldest cathedral in Saxony. Circling back and beyond Dresden, you’ll journey to a famous little palace on the Elbe styled in European-Chinese baroque. From there you’ll come to the famous Blue Wonder bridge. Here you’ll also be able to take a ride on the world’s oldest suspension cable car where, at the top, you’ll enjoy a fantastic view.
The tour lasts approximately 7 hours. Costs include transportation and the tour guide. 20 Euros per person starting at groups of three, 25 Euros per person for two people, and 50 Euros for an individual tour.
Saxon Switzerland Tour
Just east of Dresden is the national park Saxon-Bohemian Switzerland. Its bizarre sandstone rock formations and untouched nature is a hiker’s and climber’s paradise and for all who just want to get away from the city. After a hefty climb up to the world famous Bastei Bridge with its capital views of the river valley and stone mesas, the tour continues to the Festung Königstein, a fortress with a 750 year history. The third highlight is a trip to Gräfin Cosel’s fated castle in the middle of the medieval city of Stolpen.
The tour lasts approximately 8 hours. Costs include transportation and the tour guide. 25 Euros per person starting at groups of three, 30 Euros per person for two people, and 55 Euros for an individual tour.
In the Land of Sorbs, Slavs, Silesians … and Dinosaurs
The first stop is at the city of Bautzen. Over a thousand years old, it’s the capital of the Sorbs. There you’ll also visit the dinosaur park called Saurierpark Kleinwelka where, if you’re feeling brave, you can walk among and pet 100 life size concrete dinos. Afterwards, travel on to Görlitz. This beautiful art nouveau and turn-of-the-19th-century city will entice you to linger a while. On the way back Löbtau offers sweeping views of the Saxon countryside from the König-Friedrich-August-Tower, a structure fondly called the Eiffel Tower of Saxon.
