Dazzling Dresden Self-Guided Audio Walking Tour

Dazzling Dresden Self-Guided Audio Walking Tour

There are few city silhouettes more impressive than Dresden’s. The classic view from the Elbe’s northern bank takes in domes, towers and spires belonging to stately buildings, churches and palaces, and it's difficult to fathom that the city was all but wiped off the map by Allied bombings in 1945.

Perfectly suited for discovery on foot, our self-guided audio tour allows you to set the pace and explore at your leisure as you uncover the stories of this amazing city.

To discover this fascinating city in your own time and at your own pace just download this self-guided audio tour, pop in your headphones, open the map that comes with your download and start walking.

The tour will take approximately two hours, but you can pause the audio guide when needed. Grab a bite to eat or do some shopping along the way.

You wil see masterpieces such as Raphael’s breathtaking Sistine Madonna, Auguste Rodin’s iconic sculpture The Thinker.

Please note that this tour is only available in English.
