What to expect

Thanks to its architectural diversity and numerous world-class museums, Dresden can justifiably be called an art city. Not without reason the capital of Saxony is also known as Florence of the North.

Thinking of Dresden, the unique baroque old town, the Zwinger with its exquisite porcelain collection and the Old Masters picture gallery with the celebrated Sistine Madonna are of particular interest. The Historic Green Vault, as well as the New Masters gallery in the Albertinum line up.

In addition to these world-famous collections and art works Dresden offers a vivid scene of modern and contemporary art. Let yourself be carried away to the fascinating city of Dresden and find ideas for your art tour there.

Itinerary

Detailed information for journey "Art & Architecture tour Dresden"

Basic package for your art tour to Dredsen
4 days / 3 nights

Day 1: Individual arrival to DresdenResidenzschloss
On the first day of your group trip to Dresden, your guests will get to know the Saxon capital of culture. During a thematic city tour, your group will learn important details, interesting anecdotes and interesting facts about the history, art and architecture of Dresden and Saxony.

Day 2: Royal Palace and Albertinum or Old Masters picture gallery
In the morning we recommend a visit to Dresden Royal Palace. It hosts several exhibitions, including the Green Vaults and the Armory. During an overview tour, you will learn everything worth knowing. In the afternoon you can plan a visit to the Albertinum. Here the collection of the New Masters is housed with works ranging from Romanticism by Caspar David Friedrich to contemporary art by Gerhard Richter. Alternatively, you may prefer to visit the Old Masters picture gallery, which, after extensive reconstruction, will finally shine in new splendor by the end of 2019.

Day 3: Excursion to Meissen or visit to Dresden New Town
Only about 40 km from Dresden the enchanting city of Meissen is located. It gained notoriety mainly because of the porcelain. You are welcome to include a visit to the Porcelain Manufactory on your art tour to Dresden. A visit to the workshop and the extensive exhibition is definitely worthwhile.

Blick von der Kreuzkirche zur Neustadt Kulturpalast

If you would like to experience more art in Dresden, we recommend a visit to Dresden New Town (Neustadt). Although Dresden boasts mainly with its Baroque Old Town, the art scene continues in the hip New Town. Many galleries, cafés and small craft shops await you here. Visit the Kunsthof Passage, a very special place of art. A visit to the Kügelgenhaus is also a good idea, a wonderful collection of works of Dresden Romanticism.

Day 4: Individual return journey or extension
Today you start the journey home or extend your stay. Other ideas would be a visit to the arts and crafts museum in Pillnitz (with a visit to the park) or a trip to Leipzig, which also has very outstanding artworks to offer with the GRASSI Museum.
