Wonderful plaza between the palace, the Catholic church and the Bruehl Terrace and the end of the Augustusbrucke. On a Suinday it was full of tourists, locals (many on bicycles), ice cream vendors, and street musicians.

Great place to take in all the wonders of the old city. Well restored, it has become the focal point for food and music. We caught an opera singer giving a solo concert in the square. Great acoustics. Marvelous setting. Soak it in!
