Dresden - 6 day tour

A six day visit to Dresden and Meissen, organised by Taylored Travel, which is well-known to Arts Society members is being planned for mid October 2018. 

Highlights of the tour will include a walking tour of Dresden, including the cathedral and a visit to the Zwinger Gallery, famous for its collection of Old master paintings; the Meissen Porcelain Museum and the nearby Moritzburg castle. We shall also spend time at the Albertinum gallery and the Royal Palace with its famous  vaults where magnificent jewels and  silver are displayed. There will also be a paddle steamer trip on the river Elbe. The last full day will be spent at Leipzig including a visit to the Tomaskirke where J S Bach was the choir master from 1723.

The cost is from £1,129 and will include coach from Sidmouth, air travel (hopefully from Bristol Airport) half board accommodation in a four star hotel in central Dresden, and the cost of all lectures, excursions, entry fees and gratuities. Single rooms will be available at a supplementary charge.
