What to expect

For all choirs and enthusiasts of classical music, we offer a special music tour to Dresden. Two great German composers are closely linked with the Saxon capital: Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss. Did you know that nine out of fifteen operas of Richard Strauss once were premiered at the Semper Opera House in Dresden? And that an inconspicuous, small house in Graupa near Dresden is the birthplace of Richard Wagner’s well-known opera "Lohengrin"?

Come on a music tour to Dresden and travel on the footsteps of these famous musicians. To give your group tour a special highlight you should add at least one of the various musical events to your schedule: an opera performance at the Semper Opera House, an organ concert at the Church of our Lady or the Sächsische Staatskapelle with their outstanding conductor Christian Thielemann. The annual Dresden Music Festival offers the opportunity to enjoy classical music at traditional but also extraordinary venues for this music tour to Dresden.

We leave the best until last...

Working with AugustusTours was an absolute pleasure. As Specialist Tour Operators working with choirs, our needs were very different to those of their usual customers but AugustusTours met those needs admirably. The company is a model of responsive professionalism and I look forward to working with Anke and her team again soon.
