The Bruehl Terrace offers a great view in Dresden and is more or less in the middle of the city (close to a lot of other important tourist places).

Dresden is great city to take your time and stroll. When you come upon the terrace you will want to have a coffee or wine and savor the experience.

One of my favorite places in Dresden. especially at dawn, when there is still some daylight and the street lights are on, it’s a wonderful scenery!

The architecture and statues are beautiful along the Bruehl Terrace as you walk along the Elbe with river boats alongside. We were there on a Sunday with families, dogs, street performers and "bubble blowers" aplenty. A very enjoyable and beautiful walk.
