#36 of 117 in Things to do in Dresden
Make your way across Blue Wonder Bridge, one of the world's first steel suspension bridges without supporting piers. This landmark was a technological wonder at the time of its construction in 1891, and is near both a funicular and a suspension railway offering broad views of Dresden. The bridge connects two affluent areas, some of the most expensive in Europe at the end of the nineteenth century. Today, you'll find views of the Elbe along with many upscale restaurants and cafes in this area. A visit to Blue Wonder Bridge represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Dresden itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

Where to stay in Dresden

The Old City, or Altstadt district, is the city's historical center. You'll find a wide selection of accommodations around the major tourist sites. For an area that stays active both day and night, consider lodging in Aussere Neustadt, located northeast of the Old City. The Hellerau District has an urban and hip vibe, thanks to the fashionable young locals who populate the area. Boutique hotels contribute to the area's chic feel.
