Germany’s Dresden is noted for the reconstructed classic architecture of its old town, as the home of royal Saxon kings was destroyed during World War II and rebuilt afterwards. Here are a few ways to see modern Dresden on a day trip from Berlin.
Group tours make for a fun, cost-effective way to explore Dresden. With included transportation, you’ll travel travel to see the most important sights in the city center, such as the Zwinger Palace, Semper Opera House, and the famous Church of our Lady, and enjoy free time to explore the city at your own pace.
Private day trips to Dresden ensure a personal experience with the freedom to customize your itinerary. Head out from your Berlin hotel with a private driver and tour guide, then spend the day on a walking tour of what was once called the German Florence—and is still considered one of the most beautiful cities in Germany.
