DresdenWalks offers a private walking tour of the German composer Richard Wagner.
Although Wagner was not born here over 200 years ago, he had spent several years of his childhood in Dresden and returned in the mid of the 19th century to become the court conductor and so influenced the music life of Dresden decisively.
We start the walking tour on Theater Square in the historical old town where the composer had celebrated one of his greatest success ever with the premiere of three of his operas at Sempers first royal theater house.
We continue to the Church of the Holy Cross in the city center where Wagner had often went to in his childhood. In between we pass some addresses of his former homes, which unfortunately do not exist anymore because of the bombing of Dresden in 1945.
The guided tour ends on the New Market Square back in the historical old town in front of the Church of Our Lady where Wagner conducted in 1843 on the occasion of the singing festival.
DresdenWalks is looking forward introducing you to Richard Wagner in Dresden. Please check availabilities for your private walk with us.
