“There are unbelievable treasures of all kinds in this beautiful place”, wrote Goethe of Dresden.
Dresden’s Royal Palace, the former seat of the Saxon government, hosts the fabulous Green Vault treasure chamber, whilst the Zwinger is a vast complex of formal gardens, ornate fountains and grand pavilions – and home to the Old Masters Picture Gallery.
Meissen, a medieval hotch-potch of red-tiled roofs and stucco architecture, is Saxony’s oldest town. We will enjoy a leisurely trip along the River Elbe, and there will also be an opportunity to attend an optional performance at the Semper Opera House.
- Explore the cultural riches of Dresden, long considered the ‘jewel box’ of Germany
- Travel with art historian, broadcaster and ceramics expert Lars Tharp
