While the views of the city from the bridge are beautiful, they are blocked right now by all the cranes and work going on. Keep in mind that the bridge is closed to everyone but pedestrians so if you aren't walking, it takes a bit...More

The most famous bridge over Elbe was under Construction work when I was in Dresden but I walked over it one day anyway since my target was on the other side this day. I want to see this Goldener Reiter statue. I had a feeling...More

The beautiful stone arch bridge over the river connects the old town to the new and is next to the beautiful opera house. Unfortunately when I visited, the bridge was under reconstruction and could only be seen from the banks.

It is a beautiful bridge and one of the best views is from near the Kunst Akadamie high above the river. There is still a lot of scaffolding in place, but the steamers and river show it well.

Augustus Bridge used to join Schlossplatz with Neustadt as a crossing over the Elbe River. On my visit to Schlossplatz, the bridge was closed for reconstruction and it looked like it would take quite a while to re-open. A good photo of the bridge and...More

This used to be one of the best attractions in the city, with splendid views as you walked across. It's now dominated by cranes, and although there is still pedestrian access your view is severely obstructed. The nice views of trams sweeping around the historic...More

This historic bridge is currents just for pedestrians and very busy. Work is ongoing, seemingly to turn it into a carriageway, which is perhaps a pity.

Unfortunately I passed the bridge while it underwent a substantial renovation, hence could not really admire its beauty. Still the place if of prime importance as it crosses the unique Elbe landscape, a river that stretches through whole Germany till North Sea. This landscape used...More

At present the bridge is under renovation. However, it is still possible to cross and it was very popular with the locals enjoying their weekend strolls.
