The Museum of Military History in Dresden is one of the  most significant history museums within Europe. The Exhibition focuses on the human being and on the consequences of war and violence. It is a modern approach and sets itself apart from more traditional exhibitions of military museums, that often glorify the subject of war.  The extension of the historic building has been designed by Daniel Libeskind in form of a wedge through the historic building. It is a world renowned architectural highlight.
Additionally we will organize a banquet dinner and a sight seeing tour.
