Dresden criminal tour

In this entertaining costume tour Doctor Watson (aka actor and singer Dr. Stephan Reher) leads you on a musical trail through Dresden’s crime scenes.

Feared bandits, unscrupulous killers and crafty con men – all of them were up to no good in the Saxon royal residence. Some of them have even become the heroes of verses and songs, anecdotes and witty horror stories.

These include the bandit Lips Tullian and the Black Guard from the Tharandt Forest, the notorious Johannes Karasek and the con man Karl May, otherwise known as one of Germany’s most celebrated authors of adventure literature and inventor of the Apache Chief Winnetou.

Famous criminals also need celebrity victims: for example, the great Dresden painter Gerhard von Kügelgen, who bumped into an assassin; the violin virtuoso Gunkel, whose ex-lover shot him in the tram; even the Saxon King himself was in on the fun!

Dresden’s history is more exciting than a mystery thriller!

This musical costume tour is a entertaining and humourous city walk for mystery fans. You will see the scenes of famous historical crimes and hear the criminal secrets of Dresden’s alleyways.
