Description

Dresden is widely known for the devastating and controversial Allied bombing campaign. US and Royal Air Force bombers dropped 3,900 tons of high-explosive and incendiary bombs over 3 days in February 1945, destroying 13 square miles of the city. It caused a firestorm of such intensity many of the estimated 40,000 civilian casualties died of asphyxiation. American Kurt Vonnegut, who was a POW in Dresden during the firebombing, later memorialized the event in his novel Slaughterhouse-Five.

Join us for a fascinating day trip with a private bus to Dresden - the royal residence of the Saxon Kings, who established a city of such cultural and artistic splendor it was named "The Pearl of the Baroque" and is considered one of Germany's most beautiful cities.
