Owner description: Once the private garden of the Count of Bruehl, this large open plaza offers the city's best view of the River Elbe. Under the terrace are trenches, battlements and other remnants of the city's original fortifications.

A lovely walk and the views over the Elbe are great. It was freezing cold when I was there so I'm afraid I didn't walk too far. In better weather I would have enjoyed it more.

Well worth a gentle saunter along this terrace with its wonderful view across the river and its elegant open spaces.

Called the Balcony of Europe, the Bruehl Terrace is about a mile long walk built on the former fortification wall. There are pompous buildings i.e. the building of Kunstakademie on the Bruehl Terrace. From the Terrace there is a nice view on the river Elbe and the Augustus Bridge.
On one side, the Bruehl Terrace leads with a monumental staircase to the Castle Square (Schlossplatz), whereas on the other side there is a small park Bruehl Garden and the building of Albertinum.

Had a great walk with the kids on this terrace. The view of the river is not stunning, but nice. On the other side of the terrace you'll enjoy the view of many of the famous buildings of Dresden. Most of the area is not accessible for cars, therefore the kids could wander freely and safely.
On one side of the terrace there is a big stairway. Mind that if you go with a stroller/wheelchair. Having said that, as soon as we get there with two strollers, people offered their help and assisted us to step down.

The Bruehl Terrace is an excellent area to relax, stroll, sit outside or enjoy a nice restaurant. The lower river level has the winding small streets lined with restaurants, shops, etc that are the hallmark of the European experience. I stopped and enjoyed a delicious bratwurst, pretzel, and a beer just watching the Dresden world go by. You get a fantastic view of the Elbe and you can easily take a boat ride and see the Terrace from the river. This is definitely an area not to be missed and it's just a short walk from the Frauenkirche.
