FIRST-CLASS | TAILOR-MADE: Explore the picturesque city of Dresden on this first-class vacation package. Staying in a centrally located hotel, you’ll tour the city’s hills and old city squares, learn about its history of destruction and rebirth, and get a taste for its famous art and night scene in the trendy Neustadt district.


This 3-day Germany vacation explores the lovely city of Dresden.

Located in the eastern state of Saxony, Dresden had long been considered one of Europe’s prettiest cities. Then came World War II and the city was completely destroyed by Allied bombing. But in the postwar years, the city was rebuilt brick by brick and has regained its title as one of Europe’s most picturesque spots.

Staying in a premium hotel near the Neustadt district, you’ll head on a half-day sightseeing tour to explore the many charms of Dresden. Begin with a steamboat ride down the Elbe River and enter the Old City, where you’ll cross the Blue Wonder, the city’s most beautiful bridge. Then ride the mountain railway to Ober Loschwitz, where you’ll enjoy stunning panoramic views of the city. Follow the quiet hiking trails down the mountain and spend the rest of the morning on the hop-on hop-off bus, seeing famous landmarks like the Frauenkirche, the Dresden Opera House, and Zwinger Palace. That evening, explore the city’s booming cultural scene with a nighttime exploration of the Neustadt, which has over 130 bars, pubs, and restaurants. Learn about the city’s history and its emerging art scene as you head from dancehall to backyard bar. At the end of your stay, head to the airport to continue your onward journey.

This trip to Dresden is a great addition to a longer German vacation.

Dresden Hop On and Off - 1 Day Tour

Hop off and on as much as you like for an entire day! With 22 different stops throughout the city, this tour gets you to and from all the sights you want to see. Buses depart every 30 minutes, and you can ride them as much as you like in order to experience Dresden, capital of the State of Saxony. Lovingly known as "Florence on the Elbe" for its rich art collections, river views and baroque architecture, Dresden is a real gem. Take a tour of this historic city on an exclusive double-decker-bus, getting off and on as you like to admire the unique cultural monuments on offer.

Your journey starts on the Theatre Square, near the Augustus Bridge. Decide yourself whether to take the uninterrupted 90-minute tour, of hop on and off the bus to absorb the city's splendors at your own pace. Your ticket includes diverse attractions and entry-fees to the city's monuments, such as the famous Frauenkirche. This Lutheran church in baroque style, which dominates the Neumarkt, has a remarkable history. The building collapsed after sustaining heavy damage during the bombing of Dresden in 1945. The buses depart frequently every fifteen to thirty minutes. Your ticket is valid for a whole day, or, if you begin your tour after 16:00, for the next day as well - allowing you to take a break, relax, and go adventuring again the next morning.
