Biergarten with View of Elbe River & Blue Wonder Bridge

We had lunch here after walking along the Elbe River from Dresden. We chose the self-service counter to order both food and beverage and then sat at a table with a view of the river and bridge. It was a serene setting and a pleasant place to take a break from the day's activity.

Public transportation from the the city center out to the Blue Wonder Bridge area takes you through a variety of neighborhoods and is enjoyable on its own, then it drops you off into a small, interesting and very busy market area. Schillergarten is just around the corner and its outdoor patios offered great views of the river and its water... More

We liked that it was not in the city center, and we could not spot any tourist, only locals. Thus we took the walk on the road that lies next to the river (and you can see the castles while walking), and then we got to this biergarten. The place had a really nice view of the river and a... More

Another great Biergarten in another fantastic location. Perfect spot by the river with a view of the famous bridge. Good beer, good food and friendly service. Take tram 12 from old town it's ten or fifteen minutes out.

This is a lovely spot right on the river by the "Blue Wonder" bridge a few miles outside of Dresden. The river here has a terrific bike path and this would make a great ride from town. The outdoor space is huge. The food is average biergarten fare but good value. If you are biking on the Elbe river path,... More

Big place, good for groups - we were there in a party of ~20 so the space was nice to have. The food was OK but sort of boring at the same time. Saxon classics with some seasonal asparagus if you wished. Lots of tripe, blood sausage and similar dishes which I am not a fan of. The schitzel I... More

We ate here three times on our recent 1-week stay in Dresden, each time was a good experience. On our initial visit, the front of house welcome was special and the friendly staff went out of their way to speak English with us. The view from the sun room at the back over the river and towards the 'Blue Wonder'... More

Enjoy a beer garden which is frequented by locals, has a great view of Elbe and Blue Wonder bridge, and where the food is generous and high quality. Near a major tram and bus stop at Schillerplatz.
