Incredible Journey

The tour from Leipzig to Prague was such a great way to see the country side and also get to our next spot. Highly recommend doing this especially if you are moving from one spot to another. Much better than sitting on a train. We saw the country side & so much more. Our guide Petr was amazing!! Such a great guy & tour guide.

    Moritzburg Palace

    What we'll do

    During the tour we walk around the Moritzburg Palace grounds admiring the garden and the park views. We do not enter the palace but we get a close-up look. On the steps of the palace is also a chance for everyone to find out if they have what it takes to be a fairytale princess by trying on Cinderella’s shoe.




    About Moritzburg Palace

    Moritzburg Palace is named after Duke Moritz of Saxony who built a small hunting lodge here in the 16th century. The king August II the Strong had the current Baroque-style palace built in the 18th century as his country seat.

    The palace is surrounded by a stunning park and gardens area. Ironically, none of the plans (and there have been many) for the garden have been fully finished, and the work with them is still continuing.

    About Dresden

    Dresden has a long history as the capital and royal residence for the Electors and Kings of Saxony. Today Dresden is Saxony’s second biggest city after Leipzig with population around 550 000 people.

    The city is considered one of the most beautiful in Germany. It transformed into a Baroque landmark in the 18th century.
