About me:

As an American citizen here in beautiful Dresden, I have found a new home in my adopted city. I came here in 1999 as a historic preservationist and have been busily learning as much about the local and regional history as possible. Working as an English language teacher has me up in front of larger groups presenting my knowledge in interesting and amusing ways. These two experiences are what I base my tours on in the hopes that I can make your visit to Dresden all the more positive and inspiring.

What our clients say about Karens Tours:

An essential start to a visit to this beautiful city

We took this excellent walking tour with Karen who is a specialist in Art history. She gave us a wonderful insight into the history and culture of Dresden so that we could appreciate the art and architecture around us. The tour was full of historical background and anecdotes from the Middle Ages to Post-War which brought the places alive. We only had a short time there but were able to choose a couple of museums to visit later on her recommendation. She was pleasant and friendly too – we shared a bratwurst on the street after the walk.

A great introduction to Dresden!

Would recommend doing this tour in the beginning of your stay in Dresden as this is a very good introduction to the main sights and history of the city

“Fantastically informative”

A New York native, after 16 years in Germany involved in architectural restoration Karen‘s extensive knowledge was matched by her passion for the history and buildings of Dresden. 2 hours were over in a blink and we could’ve done two more. Cannot recommend highly enough.

“Excelente tour!”

Hicimos el tour en inglés con Karen, conocimos muchísimos puntos importantes de la ciudad en un tour de 2 horas por el centro histórico. Sus explicaciones fueron muy claras, divertidas y se entienden a la perfección.
Thanks Karen!!

“This excellent introduction to Dresden made all the difference!”

My husband and I would not have enjoyed our week in Dresden nearly as much if we have not taken this tour quite soon after we arrived. Karen provided the perspective of someone who has lived on both sides of the Atlantic and has studied the history of Dresden.

She helped us get our bearings in this fascinating city and went out of her way to advise us about other things to do in the region. We enjoyed her clear explanations, her sense of humor, and her ability to see history and current events from different points of view. I highly recommend this tour. — JoanP

Just finished a two hour tour through Dresden with Karen. Superb, thanks a lot!!!! [August 2015]
Great insight into an interesting city!

Hubby and I joined Karen for the DresdenWalks Old Town tour and had a wonderful experience! Karen was very knowledgable and eager to share what she knew! The tour covered the early history of the city and it’s rulers, it’s stunning architecture as well as the more recent history for which Dresden is more widely known! A great way to orientate yourself and get some insight into a very interesting city!
