You simply can't miss the terrace and being wowed by the buildings along the terrace. We were there on a cold, super windy and rainy day but the crowd was not deterred as the view was breathtaking! We went back on the second day and lingered again despite worse weather. Have to return soon on a sunny day to admire... More

We recently spent a few days in Dresden and found the famous Brühl's Terrace a nice place to see even during the winter months when the trees which line sections of the terrace bare and devoid of leaves. Brühl's Terrace stretchs along the south side of the Elbe, separating the river from the Historic City Centre. It is an architectural... More

Regardless of the season and moment of the day, Brühl's Terrace offers a unique point of view of the River Elbe and the city. Its convenient location within the Old City provides a perfect starting point of exploration for the visitors of Dresden!

A lovely place to stroll and take in the views of the city and of the Elbe. There is a lovely terrace where you can sit and drink coffee but unfortunately it wasn't open when we were there. However we did see the boats and went on a one and a half hour boat trip down the Elbe - well... More

Just go there, spend minutes or hours contemplating the architecture of the amazing building or just watching the tourist boat in the river. Amazing and beautiful

A popular place for a promenade to look at the river and the grand architecture. Built over the surviving remnants of the old town defences from mid 1500s hence why you have to climb stairs to reach it.

The walk along the terrace offers great views of the river Elbe and adjacent museums, palaces and churches. There are benches to sit down, relax and enjoy. Nearly mediterranean feeling. Can get crowded.

On both ends, the Terrasse offers grandios views of the castle/opera and of the Frauenkirche. Nice walk along the Elbe river in between. No entry fee. Don't miss to cross the Elbe bridge from the castle/opera side of the Terrasse for a classic view of the Dresden silhouette from the other Elbe side.
