The view from the terrace in Dresden is lovely, looking over the river at "new town". A group of musicians was playing on the end near a cluster of shops and restaurants; the music added to the beauty of the area.

Quite a lively spot with bands playing all kinds of music on the grand steps leading up to the gardens. Well shaded in the summer with plenty of seating, ideal for a break on a hot day. The view along the river is very nice, with the steam boats docked just below.

Reading a history of dresden it can be realised that this riverfront promenade was once a social hub of the city. Now it is OK but probably just the haunt of tourists like us.

As you climb the wide stairs to the Terrace, acknowledging the 4 lovely statues illustrating the 4 times of day, on your right is a law court. Once on the upper deck, and a walk under the shady trees, I headed for the rail. What a terrific view of the river, a bridge left and right, a busy road underneath... More

The Bruehl terrace is a must visit part of the old city where you can feel the vibration of the Elbe and admire the wonderful views from there. A great place to enjoy a coffee and people watch, the terrace is also great for a stroll to enjoy various views, get great photos and watch the historic steamers on the... More

My husband and I visited Dresden on a beautiful sunny day in early March. We took a leisurely walk along the terrace, the views of the river and the surrounding buildings were amazing. Dresden is a beautiful city and it was very enjoyable walk.........

This is a wonderful walk with beautiful views of the river and the majesty of buildings along it- as well as lots of trees and flowers in spring, which add to the ambiance.
