Bruhl's Terrace is also known as the balcony of Europe.It is located next to the Elbe river and offers beautiful views.It is a great place to have a leisurely stroll and watch the steamers on the river.It is near the popular landmarks Semperoper,the Furstenzug and if you are visiting those places, you should climb up a few stairs and walk...

Love the views across the Elbe River. The Terrace is so closed to the other Dresden attractions - it would be nice to use it as final stop to watch the sunset or a mid-stop to simply enjoy the beauty of Dresden.

It's not just a walk alongside the river like in other places in Europe or elsewhere. You feel like you are waking in history since you have all these gigantic and magnificent buildings on the other side of the terrace. It also offers you with a great view of Dresden Old Town and the beautiful Elbe river.

The views are amazing. Even though it was cold, windy, and rainy, we had a great time, and we will definitely come back in summer when it is sunny.

We were disapointed with this site, although the river vistas were interesting the terrace itself didn't do much for us - maybe it was just because it was a dull, drizzly day when we visited.

The view is great, but not outstanding for the historic center of Dresden. But during sunset this place looks really great, when the city lights light up and the sky gets darker. Real old Europe, as it stays in classic literature.

This terraced walkway is a wonderful way to view the Elbe River as it meanders along the Old Town area of Dresden. The view is wonderful and the terrace itself sits along many fine baroque architectural buildings.

The terrace is great for a morning walk before it gets busy, with a lovely view of the Elbe and the typical Romanesque architecture of Dresden all around. Come lunch time several restaurants open and it becomes a great place for coffee and cake. Definitely worth a visit!

It is not very big, but it has a nice view of river Elba and its coast. I don't really get it why is it that famous.

A nice place to sit in good weather, enjoy the view, and sip a beer or aperitif. Or, if you are so inclined, the Hilton hotel has a cafe right on the terrace where you can get some nice pastries.
