Dresden's 'Balcony of Europe': A Self-Guided Audio Tour along the River Elbe

Dresden's 'Balcony of Europe': A Self-Guided Audio Tour along the River Elbe

The cobbled streets and historical charm of Dresden attract busloads of visitors but only a few of them find its hidden ”balcony”. This stretch along the River Elbe is in the city centre, but has stately architecture and sweeping views over the magnificent Elbe Valley with its vineyards. Property here was once so coveted that for a long time only a select few could even set foot upon the Balcony of Europe.

On this self-guided audio tour you'll learn the answers to these questions:

• How did this come to be called "The Balcony of Europe"?
• Can there be someone richer than a king?
• What’s the name of Dresden's most famous cake?
• What’s the significance of a bench made out of white plastic?
• Is there a link between Dresden's and Hansel and Gretel?
• What is Saxony's "White Gold"
