Like an arm stretching out. It is a major site when you view Dresden. Great to see from afar. The river flowing below so picturesque.

Went over this bridge to go to the markets. Great to walk across with views of the old and new sides of Dresden. Easy to walk along both sides of the river from this bridge.
