On Sunday, Februar 21st 2010, DresdenWalks invited Germans for a special (free) tour offered because of the international tourist guide day. It’s main topic was “It reeks of work…”.
We greeted approximately 60 persons at 11 o’clock to our tour. Saskia, Astrid, Tom, Anke and Jana were the “realay team”. Heidi and Sylvia took care of our individual guest who joined the “ordinary” tours and Katharina stayed home with her “juniors”.
For this special topic “It reeks of work…” our guides thought of new and forgotten objects and topics. So we talked about mechanics of the Semper Opera House, the former tanners quarter and the “queck” water fountain, the Procession of Princes with its various craftsmen, Saxon inventions in food and beverages and about the Yenidze and its cigarettes. Guests listened to each guide and stayed with us until the end even though it started snowing.
It was a wonderful tour for all of us. We enjoyed it a lot and look forward to the next tourist guide day in 2011 and until then – to many guests for our daily tours in town.
