Also private guide for:

Dresden, Park Pillnitz, Meissen, Moritzburg, Saxon Switzerland, Bautzen and Upper Lusatia, Görlitz, Castle Weesenstein

About me:

Born in Upper Lusatia I moved to Dresden in 2000. The studies of Landscape Architecture, Medieval and Saxonian history as well as History of Arts at the TU Dresden made me to decide imparting the history of Saxony as a tour guide. Even though Dresden is for most visitors the first to see and impressing itself, it is important to me to also give an impression of the unique culture and history of whole Saxony.

Particularly close to my heart is to tell history in an entertaining and exciting way.


licenced guide:

Castle Weesenstein; certified guide after European Standard DIN EN



What our clients say about Susanns Tours:

Local guide brings history and color to the tour

My husband and I were in Dresden for a few days with our young adult children right after Christmas. We didn’t do the tour until our last day and wish we had done it on our first. Susie was our guide and she was terrific. She’s from a town that is nearby and shares her own personal history and perspective on the city. She provided history and context, as well as recommendations for things to do while you are visiting. We had a pretty big group and she managed it well and met everyones needs.

I so enjoyed your tour of Dresden with Susann  on Sat, Sept 24 at 2:30. I just posted a review on Trip Advisor, but also wanted to let you know what a great job she did. I’m also copying the review I posted on Trip Advisor here so that if you have a place on your website for reviews (that I didn’t see) you can post it there if you wish.

The one thing I forgot to include was that as it turned out that day, I was the ONLY person on the tour. Susann was so extremely gracious and generous with me in sharing information about your amazing city. And she mentioned that your company is careful to keep groups small all the time, even bringing in extra guides if needed to split up a larger group.

So, anyway, I just wanted to thank you – and Susann, again for a great experience in Dresden. Her tour was the highlight of my time there!

I  love to explore the history of the places I visit, and so enjoyed a fantastic walking tour by Susann while recently in Dresden. She’s got a degree in Medieval History of the area, her English was perfect, and she gave me just the right amount of information in the two-hour tour without overwhelming me. Dresden is easily walkable, and she gave me such great information about Dresden starting with the original “swamp people” of Dresden and later Augustus the Strong, and then guided me through so many great historical sights including the Zwinger, the former royal palace and grounds, the Opera House, and of course, Frauenkirke, providing insights I never would have known without her, and photos of what places had once looked like. Highly recommended!

“Informative tour”

Only had a one day visit to Dresden and wanted to get an understanding of the old town. Our guide, Susan was excellent. Susan had studied history at Uni and it was soon evident that she knew a lot more about Dresden than just the story of the buildings. Would certainly recommend this tour and in particular our guide Susan.

Excellent tour by engaging historian.

Our knowledgeable guide illuminated Dresden’s long history with memorable facts, a local’s insight, and a sense of humour. She also gave us really useful tips about what to seek out to get best views, best value. Highly recommended!

We took your Old Town tour 2 weeks ago and really enjoyed our tour. Our guide was Suzie. I was starting to label my pictures and found one that I couldn’t identify. Could you help me?
Thank you!
[PS: we were able to help :)/May 2015]
Great tour of a beautiful city

Suzi took us on a roughly 1.5h tour through the old town of Dresden – it was the perfect way to see the city and she was absolutely full of knowledge. She shared personal experiences that occurred during GDR times and was more than happy to answer all questions. Suzi focussed on making the tour a celebration of the Florence on the Elbe rather than purely on the events of 1945.
A must do when in Dresden from memory it was around 12 euro pp and was definitely well worth it.
