"World Heritage Discovery Tour"

Experience the Dresden Elbe valley from the land, from the air and from the water. During a combined walking and coach tour, we would like to introduce a cultural landscape which has evolved over the course of 800 years. Learn more about the famous sights of the city, such as the Zwinger, Semper Opera House and Frauenkirche. The journey continues past broad green meadows and below the so-called Elbe palaces to the oldest suspension railway in the world.

From the Loschwitz Heights, you can enjoy a magnificent view over the whole Elbe valley. The next stopping point is no less fascinating: Pillnitz Palace and Park. During a tour of the complex, you will become acquainted with the history, architecture and landscape gardening of this unique integral work of art. Alongside the dendrological treasures of the park, we will also show you around one of its pavilions, the Catholic palace chapel and the historical palace kitchens. During the return journey to Dresden aboard a paddle-steamer, you can relax and absorb once more the harmony of urban and natural landscapes.
