An interesting walk through a section of the subterranean fortifications of Dresden, with audio guide in a variety of languages included as part of admission. It isn't too extensive and can be seen in less than an hour.

I am unsure? I thought they had a website? Here it is, I couldn't find it in English. You can try using a language app to write and ask. Then when they answer. You can use the app to copy and paste the answer. I usually write in English and German. They won't let me post their website, but search Festung Dresden and it will give Your their website. I hope it helps.
