Dresden Baroque Quarter and Artisan Arcades

Join us on a pleasant walking tour through the Baroque Quarters. Built as “New King’s Town” in the 18th century, Augustus the Strong made his dream of a Baroque residence come true.

The famous king himself sits enthroned over the main street as the famous gilded monument “Golden Rider”. From there our walking tour begins through a shady plane tree avenue, winding streets, romantic courtyards and royal view axes.

The unbroken rows of baroque patrician houses, originally preserved and restored at great expense, provide a good impression of how Dresden used to look. You can stroll around the centuries in a relaxed atmosphere.

This is the place with the highest concentration of artisan shops in Dresden. Charming arcades have sprung up in the Baroque townhouses. Numerous artisans, artist galleries, antique shops and various eating establishments combine a unique shopping experience, delicate handicrafts and relaxation opportunities.

The highlights of this tour:
Golden Rider, baroque Dreikönigskirche (Three King’s Church), Artisan Arcades, historic market hall and the Japanese Palais with its lush park near the river.
