These city tours focus on the perspective of Dresden citizens with a history of migration. Stories are told by people who fled from the war in Syria, as well as people whose roots go back further as is the case for migrant contract workers in the GDR.

No tour resembles the other, because the city guides link places in the city with stations of their own biography. Together with the participants, they follow traces of migration in Dresden, talk about their own experiences and open up a dialogue about (post-)migrant perspectives on the city.

The tours are designed for both people from Dresden and visitors to the city.

As a means of civic education, they are suitable for everyone from the age of 14.
