Guided Tours Dresden with Discover Dresden

Discover Dresden with Jana Malschewski-Boehm

Dear guests.

I would like to introduce myself on this page.

I was born in Dresden and lived almost all my life in this beautiful city also called „Florence of the Elbe“. I only left for two longer trips.

After I finished high school I went to the U.S. to work there as an AuPair (live-in nanny) for one year. I improved my English language skills and explored not only New Orleans and its surroundings with „my“ children. Still today I visit my American family now and then.

Back in Germany in 1998 I started studying Transport Economics at the Technical University Dresden. Two of my majors were Tourism and English. I got introduced to the tourism branch in Dresden quickly. So I worked for different travel agencies, tour operators and the official tourism board of Dresden. In the middle of my studies I took a half year break to go to Louisiana again. I was accepted for an internship at the Louisiana Office of Tourism and proud to work for the Welcome Centers of this state.

After I finished university I worked for a local destination management company which was quite an exciting job. There I also came up with the idea becoming a full-time tour guide for Dresden and Saxony. I really enjoy to work with visitors from all over the world and would like to show my wonderful town to even more.

Besides all that I have been working as a volunteer at a canoe club „Verein Kanusport Dresden e.V.“ for many years already. One of my tasks was to coach the youngest ones in flat-water racing. Now I take care of my own youngster.

Dear visitors of Dresden and dear (new) Dresdeners,

for some years now, I have been studying a lot about the history of the city of „arts and culture“. I discovered many interesting facts I did not know before. Therefore I would love to share this and that with you during my city tours.

On foot, by coach or paddle steamer or a little more sportive – biking along or canoeing on the Elbe River. Just guided city tours – the way you like it.


Yours truly,


Jana Malschewski-Böhm
