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.

I walked along the Bruehl's Terrace on a sunny morning. It was lovely as there were few people there. From the Terrace you get a good view on the Elbe river and Neustadt on the other side of the water. On the Altstadt side you walk past the Albertinum and you can even see the Frauenkirche peak out above other... More

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.
