Dresden has a long history as the capital and royal residence for the Electors and Kings of Saxony, who for centuries furnished the city with cultural and artistic splendor, and was once by personal union the family seat of Polish monarchs. The city was known as the Jewel Box, because of its baroque and rococo city centre. The controversial American and British bombing of Dresden in World War II towards the end of the war killed approximately 25,000 people, many of whom were civilians, and destroyed the entire city centre. After the war, restoration work has helped to reconstruct parts of the historic inner city, including the Katholische Hofkirche, Johaneum, the Zwinger and the famous Semper Oper. After a guided tour, you will have the opportunity to visit the museums, go shopping or just enjoy the beautiful city.

To enjoy the dinner in Auerbachskeller we bring you back to Leipzig.

We visit one of the species-richest zoos in Europe, Zoo Leipzig. Founded in the 19th century, today it has become a modern zoological garden with a focus on species-appropriate animal housing. The new tropical building “Gondwanaland” is an attraction for a vast number of tourists every year. It is home for many endangered species.

Before the program ends we will visit the Panometer in Leipzig and discover the RMS TITANIC in a unique 360° Panorama by Yadegar Asisi. The 32 m high Panorama provides visitors with a unique and rare view to the bottom of the Atlantic at approx. 4000 metres depth and shows the wreck of the RMS Titanic on a Panorama area of 3500 square metre. The Panorama focuses less on the actual ship tragedy from 1912 but instead illustrates the limits of human achievement versus the forces of nature. From a 15 m high visitor’s tower, the artist provides a view of the wreck on the ocean floor using an artificial light show at a water depth with no natural light.

The price is 395 Euro, includes transport, entrance fees, barbecue, dinner but not the individual food.
