Nice view for a photo just like the painting
Aug 2020
It's a short walk from the city, and when we were there, a festival was ongoing with films, theatre, etc... which made it even more worthwile. You get the famous look on the city, for a nice panoramic photo.
Do use photoshop afterwards however, to remove the many cranes that Canaletto did not have on his painting :-)

Really worth the short walk by the Elbe
Feb 2020
Really worth taking the Tram 9 and a walk along Koenigstrasse beforehand. Go to the Tram offices and buy a family ticket for the day. Lots to see,

ELABORATE RIVER FRONT!!!
Sep 2019
Waterfront is filled with buildings with SUPERB GRAND architecture and GOLDEN statues on top of the buildings.

Many benches along water front to sit and relax and enjoy the view for an hour. Plus outdoor restaurants to do the same and relax with food and drinks.

LOVELY EXPERIENCE

Great Views
Sep 2019
The Canaletto Blick is a part of the north bank of the River Elbe that has nice views of the south bank including Augustus Bridge, Residenzschloss, Dresden Cathedral and the Semperoper, all from one place. In truth, there are many places along either banks of the river where you can get great views, so there's no need to go out of the way to visit this spot. Although you won't be disappointed if you do.

Excellent views of the Elbe
Aug 2019
What a view! this what everybody comes to Dresden for! Gorgeous river views, with boats going by if the river is not too low and all the Dresdner Baroque buildings make this a unique sight. Not to be missed.

Wide green zone for some different attractions and events.
Aug 2019
I would describe this place, this zone, not as big, but as a very long and very wide square, in which it is comfortable to have a picnic, take a walk or ride a bicycle. And from this side you can see what can be called the "image of the restoration of the city." On this side there is a point from which you can see the modern look of the city, which is captured in one of the famous paintings only at the restoration stage. And at this very point there is even a metal frame with a signature, in which you can see exactly the part that is visible in the picture.
Also, on this side from time to time, various cultural events take place, both autonomous, and those that take place on the territory of the Japanese palace, right next to this zone.

The reconstruction work was fantastic.

I saw Canaletto painting and I made my own pictures there, as Canaletto! I feel like I was leaving in his timeline, interesting idea. The reconstruction work was amazing.

A nice tribute
Jun 2019 • Couples
The metal frame set up on the river bank from which Canaletto seems to have painted at least one of his landscapes of the city of Dresden, however, were he to return to the scene today, he would find at least 3 bright yellow cranes and several other signs of construction work intruding into his romantic view - perhaps this is an allegory for our times? Considering, however, that much of the skyline visible today was more or less flattened in 1945, it shines a light on man’s commitment to create beauty out of destruction and gives us a sense of hope that, even with the passage of several hundred years a city and its people will continue to move forward.

Revival of a painting
Feb 2019 • Business
Canaletto was hired to paint many views of Dresden in the 18th century and here you can bring one of his works to live in the present. Nice walk on the banks of the river Elbe, easy to reach from the old city as well as Dresden Neustadt
