2013-06-08 | Flood situation in Dresden: You’re in good hands at AugustusTours!

There are no damages because of the floods in Dresden: You can still visit the baroque old town of Dresden with the Royal PalaceThe past week has seen Central and Eastern Germany faced with a state of emergency, with many rivers such as the Mulde, Weiße Elster, Saale and Elbe bursting their banks and causing significant damage in some areas. The situation in Eastern Saxony had already started to ease by the time the Elbe reached its peak in Dresden on the 6th of June 2013. The water level in Dresden is now slowly receding, and the same also applies in other Saxon towns such as Bad Schandau, Meißen and Riesa.

Flood precautions taken further to the 100-year flood of 2002 have ensured that Dresden’s Old Town and its many highlights remain dry. Guests travelling to Dresden can therefore rest assured that their tour will go ahead. All partner hotels included in Group Tours booked prior to the floods have remained unaffected and continue to offer their usual high levels of service. Water, electricity and other services are secure.

Continue to expect the very best in AugustusTours service despite the floods!


The effects of the flood will be visible for some weeks to come, however this will not necessitate a hiatus in tourist activities. There is therefore nothing to stop you taking a City Tour to Dresden in the near future! The Saxon capital is accessible via the usual routes and visits of all types can continue to take place.

It is also “business as usual” in the case of trips out into the surrounding region. Whether as part of a Group Tour or as an excursion from Dresden, visits to Berlin / Potsdam, Bautzen and Upper Lusatia can continue as normal. The same applies to City Tours and excursions to Leipzig, as well as visits to the Richard Wagner sites in Graupa and walks in Saxon Switzerland.

Even at this exceptional time, you can rest assured that AugustusTours will do everything in its power to ensure that your City or Cultural Tour gives all guests a wonderful and unforgettable experience!
