What You Can Expect

Dresden Day Trip from Prague

Day Trip to Dresden

Departing Prague by luxury coach, head toward the Czech Republic's northern border with Germany and enjoy a scenic three-hour drive. You’ll reach Dresden in the late morning.

Upon arrival, visit the world-renowned Zwinger Gallery with its art collections by famous masters. See the Sistine Madonna by Raphael, and view more paintings by Titian, Lucas Cranach, Canaletto and other Flemish artists.

Next, pass though the Dresden Castle complex, which has been completely renovated, and visit the rebuilt Church of the Virgin Mary (Frauenkirche). This wonderful church is a dominant feature of the city and an icon of the city’s reconstruction after WWII.

After your guided tour, enjoy free time for lunch (own expense), shopping and more sightseeing. Don't miss the Blue Wonder, a steel bridge over the Elbe that is an impressive 482 feet (147 meters) of engineering. You can also see the Semper Opera House, a magnificent Roman building dating back to 1648; Richard Wagner presented many premieres of his work here.

You will return to Prague by coach in the late evening

This trip was the highlight of our two weeks in Europe! We took a van with several other folks and our guide over the border into Dresden. Our tour guide was so nice and kept the conversation going during the ride. His tour was great- he knew a lot about this history of Germany and Czech Republic so we got detailed information from a knowledgeable source.

Dresden is simply beautiful! It is a great city to spend a day. We had two full weeks of activities and this way my favorite by far!

Since I booked online, I was assured of my trip to Dresden despite the fact that there was only one other passenger. Our driver was also our tour guide. So my fellow tourist and I pretty much received a personal one-on-one guided tour through Dresden!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Worked out very well. I appreciated the time to roam around on my own over and above the guided part.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Great day trip with a relaxed pace. The art gallery is fantastic! Really enjoyed the porcelain museum too.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

It took about 2 hours to get there from prague, which wasn't so bad. The city is absolutely beautiful. You get 2 hours to yourself after the tour, and while there didn't seem like there was a lot else to do, it was very pleasant getting to experience the city. I was hoping there would be more attractions with the bombings that occurred here but there wasn't too much. Our tour guide bedr was amazing. He gave a great tour but he also was very entertaining on the trips there and back. I wish I had him as my tour guide for the other tours I went on as well.
