The Third Reich in Dresden- private tour

The Third Reich in Dresden- private tour

star-5
1
Third Reich Tour in Dresden provides an insight to how the Nazis came to power and sustained it to the bitter end against the backdrop of events in Dresden. As the capital of the richest and most densely populated region of Germany at that time, and one of the cultural centres of the Reich, Dresden was in the centre of attention of the regime. Since the tour also covers the major landmarks of the historic city of Dresden it can be the perfect choice for those who who want to see the city centre, but also have an interest in this special topic. The tour is led by a local guide who is not of German origin. This made her ask questions and dig deep in order to understand the events that took place in this turbulent time. The tour content arose out of these years of personal enquiry and interest in the subject. As this is a private tour, it can be customized and personalized according to your wishes.
