What you'll do

My tour consists of the most interesting facts about the glorious past of Dresden, its rich art history and exciting present. As an art historian I cannot but introduce you to how Dresden established itself as a city of world-class art and sadly how the most of it disappeared during the Second World War. We will have a glimpse into the future of the ‚City of Arts’. You will hear what the initial purpose of Zwinger was and what the ‚white gold’ is and why everyone was after it. We will talk about the sudden destruction of Dresden and how it rose from ashes to shine in the never before seen splendour. We will enjoy a piece of a sweet traditional Christmas treat on our way to slowly get you into the mood for Weihnachten (German for Christmas) - please, let me know if you have any food allergies so that I can look for an alternative. The tour will be in English. Other time slots are possible - do not hesitate to contact me. Looking forward to meeting you and showing you the city I love! There is a short 1,5 h version of this tour available here: https://www.airbnb.de/experiences/1256044/book?scheduled_id=17244370 Reduced price for groups is possible - please, contact me.

Karina

I studied Art History at the Dresden University and was fortunate to have had the primary focus on Dresden, because this city has so much to offer in terms of art and culture! I have been doing city and museum tours for friends in different languages for years now until they gave me the idea to make it my job in order to share my knowledge with more people from all over the world. For all the 9 years I have been living in Dresden I was collecting the most exciting stories for the tours I am offering here and I am always up for getting to know something new.

Where you'll be

In this tour we will walk or stand outside (we will not visit museums!) for up to three hours - make sure to put on warm clothes and shoes. We will have a break at a nice museum's café, where you can use the restroom and/or warm yourself up with a cup of coffee (price not included in the tour!). The group will consist of maximum 6 people which will make it easier for you to hear me well and will give enough room for your questions.
