There are different possibilities to get to know about DresdenWalks. Either you have a look on our website, you go to the Dresden Dresden Tourist Information, in the hotel you stay or just by passing by our green sign on the Schlossplatz/ Castle Square.

But our tours can also be booked now on the web page of different travel websites. You pay the same price as on the spot. People can give a feedback after the walking tour which is very helpful not only for us but also for upcoming guests. The first reviews can be found for our German tours on

We had already started last year offering combo tours which are a combination of the walking tour and a boat tour on the Elbe river. As this had been successful we also offer this combo this year. No matter where you want to go, whether to Meissen, Pillnitz or the Saxon Switzerland, you get a discount for booking both. This combo is only available on the spot at our sign.
And – all cruises have English comments now.

Dresden Walks is also presented on facebook (see and we are happy about the growing number of guests and fans we have.

We are looking forward guiding more and more tourists from Germany and abroad through the Old Town of Dresden.

Pillhnitz-bergpalais in
The Park of Pillnitz, situated in the suburbs of Dresden and famous for the old summer residence of the Wettin dynasty and a botanical garden, is going to charge an entrance fee, starting on 2nd April 2012.

The day ticket, so called ‘Garden Ticket’, will cost 2.00 EUR p.p. and includes the entrance to the park as well as the entrance to the palm house (reduced entrance fee 1.00 EUR p.p., group entrance 1.50 EUR p.p., children under 16 years are free).

The ‘Museum ticket’ does not only include the entrance to the park but also to the museums (Arts and Crafts Museum, Pillnitz Palace). This one costs 8.00 EUR p.p. (reduced 4.00 EUR p.p.)

The best and most beautiful way to get to Pillnitz is a cruise on the Elbe River. The Saxon Steamboat Company starts its season on 5th April. There are several tours that include a stop at the Pillnitz pier: the Castle Cruise to Pillnitz, the new National Park Line (from Pillnitz to the Saxon Switzerland) and the Elbe Valley Line (Dresden to the Saxon Switzerland).

We would like to suggest you to combine a guided walking tour through the Old Town of Dresden with a visit to Pillnitz. Enjoy the wonderful Dresden Elbe valley on a historical steamboat cruise after our walking tour.

DresdenWalks is able to offer a special combo tour in cooperation with the Saxon Steamboat Company.

Our daily walking tours start at 11 a.m. at our green signboard on Schlossplatz square.
