  • It is a nice stop. It doesn't take that long and there is a lot to see and hear. You are running around in the remains of an old castle protection belt. The place itself is history and they have exhibits and items from many time periods. You learn about the discovery of white gold in the western world how the city was protected and some politics and city building strategies and ... Don't worry they don't get into it to much it is just really entertainment and some party knowledge.
  • Nice to spend a hour ot two and learn about the history of the city. Cheap. Good audioguides.
  • Unbedingt anschauen bei einem Dresden Besuch!
  • Great Museum with interesting insights into the history of Dresden. The audio guide is fine, with him it is in as 1 to 1.5 hours. On hot days, you get a nice cooling here underground. By flooding a is not accessible currently 14 stations. The entrance is a little hidden. Preis-Leistung top.
