Dresden hugs the world

A few thoughts in conclusion

Dresden is our place of work and at the same time home of many employees of AugustusTours. As Dresdeners, we follow the events in our city very closely and are familiar with numerous reports. We know about the displeasure of numerous Pegida supporters and their partly right-wing ideas. We distance ourselves from this.

As tourism professionals, we have chosen a beautiful profession in which we are allowed to convey our basic attitude and our need for cosmopolitanism and tolerance on a daily basis. Like thousands of other people, institutions and companies in Saxony, we are active as private individuals and also as AugustusTours in supporting actions for refugees.

Dresden embraces the world - we are there.
