Dresden tour with paddle steam boat trip on the river Elbe*.
This Dresden tour is a very special experience. You will see Dresden from many surprising perspectives and use 3 different means of transport on your way.
From the historic old town you embark on a paddle steamer cruise. On this historic steamboat you have an especially magnificent view to the buildings of the old town, the famous Elbe palaces, the vineyards and the elegant residential villas, accompanied by your Dresden guide.
A paddle steamer trip with the Sächsische Dampfschifffahrt gives you romantic landscape and a breeze around your nose, elegantly sliding past the most beautiful views of the city and its singularly beautiful surroundings. This is a special kind of city tour!
At Blasewitz we berth in the midst of Dresden’s most beautiful villa district. On a leisurely walk we cross the famous “Blue Wonder”, our most beloved historical bridge, and stroll through the romantic fishing village Loschwitz situated directly at the river.
From this place we are aiming high: We take the historical funicular, one of Dresden’s mountain railways, up to a district called “The white Stag” (Der weiße Hirsch). This area housed one of the most exclusive health resorts of the 19th century. You can still feel the atmosphere of the elegant spa in the lavish villas and the lush gardens.
After that we travel by tram into Dresden Neustadt where we will take a coffee break at Pfund’s Dairy. This place is deemed “the most beautiful dairy shop of the world” by Guinness’ Book of Records. Here we will have a cup of coffee and a slice of Eierschecke, the famous Dresden cake speciality.
After the coffee break we return to the old town by tram. – Upon request we can also arrange a bus transfer.
