Saxony under National Socialism, Dresden under National Socialism: there are many studies and treatises on this subject. The garden city of Hellerau is often treated as a blind spot. But even in the supposedly idyllic garden city in the north of Dresden, the clocks did not stop; the years 1933 to 1945 shaped life there. Participants in the garden city tour will learn about the changes that took place, what was built, the fate of the Festspielhaus and much more.

Duration: 2 hours

Payment for the ticket will be made on the day of the event.


In addition to the Garden City under National Socialism, you can also get to know the Festspielhaus Hellerau (6/4 €) during an additional guided tour at 11:00 am. You can register for both tours via the above e-mail address.
