Once the private garden of the Count of Bruehl, this large open plaza offers the city's best view of the River Elbe. Under the terrace are trenches, battlements and other remnants of the city's original fortifications.

Dresden is great city to take your time and stroll. When you come upon the terrace you will want to have a coffee or wine and savor the experience.

One of my favorite places in Dresden. especially at dawn, when there is still some daylight and the street lights are on, it’s a wonderful scenery!

The architecture and statues are beautiful along the Bruehl Terrace as you walk along the Elbe with river boats alongside. We were there on a Sunday with families, dogs, street performers and "bubble blowers" aplenty. A very enjoyable and beautiful walk.

This walk is best done at night as the city is aglow with lights and the sights reflect off the river. Either a long walk or a short troll will fill one with wonder over the intricate architecture along the terrace.
