What you'll do

This is a short version of my 3 hour Art&History tour (description and reviews are available here: https://www.airbnb.de/experiences/1193764/book?scheduled_id=16895992). It consists of the most interesting and important 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 talk about the sudden destruction of Dresden and how it rose from ashes to shine in the never before seen splendour. You will hear what the initial purpose of Zwinger was, what the ‚white gold’ is and why everyone was after it. We will enjoy a small 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. Reduced price for groups is possible - please, contact me. Looking forward to meeting you and showing you the city I love!

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 and stand outside (we will not visit museums!) for up to two hours maximum - make sure to put on comfortable warm enough clothes and shoes. You will hear exciting stories about the most famous buildings in the city centre of Dresden and people who used to live in them. The group will consist of maximum 8 people which will make it easier for you to hear me well and will give enough room for your questions.
