My trademark tours: Psychology Writes History 1 and 2
Psychology Writes History 1- Deconstructing the Hitler Myth
Adolf Hitler, Nazis and the rise and fall of the Third Reich are subjects that continue to fascinate and perplex us. On this 2 hour walking tour I explain the chain of events, the blatant and subtle use of propaganda, subliminal messages and the dark charisma of Adolf Hitler that led to the catastrophic events of the second world war. This tour explores the psychological underpinnings and takes into account human motivations and ambitions and how they shape history. It is for those with a deep interest in the subject.
Note: This tour will focus almost entirely on this toipc. If you have not seen Dresden at all before doing this please inform me in advance so that I can customise it for you, or do a regular walking tour separately, or do the Hitler, Third Reich and World War 2 tour.
Duration: 2 hours
Psychology Writes History 2- Dresden's long wait for freedom
This is a great tour if you are seeing the city for the first time, but are also interested in the Cold War and the times of the German Democratic Republic (GDR). We walk through the city centre of Dresden, and you see all the major highlights and iconic buildings as in a classic two hour Walking Tour of Dresden, but in addition there is a focus on the years between 1945 and 1990.
This tour becomes spectacular as a 3.5 hour option that includes a trip to the Stasi Memorial- the former prison and interrogation centre where you understand how repression, fear and intimidation work in times of 'supposed peace'. I call this tour Psychology Writes History 2- Dresden's long wait for freedom
2 hour option: 100€
3.5 hour option: 140€ plus 6€ each for tickets into the Stasi Museum and tram ticket to get there.
