Bruehl Terrace, Dresden

(4.7/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
Nicknamed "the balcony of Europe," Bruehl Terrace offers superb views of the River Elbe. Take a walk down the terrace to admire the historic buildings and picturesque surroundings. Pause near the Johann Friedrich Böttger monument to look for a fingerprint in the guardrail of the terrace garden. It is said to have been left by August the Strong and to be proof of his strength. Pop into a cafe, sip a coffee, and watch the mix of tourists and locals walk by. Put Bruehl Terrace on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Dresden vacation generator.

  • It is so wonderful to stroll this way. And nobody really very often, this occurs one on the feet. Look at and enjoy it simply.

  • The balcony of Europe. That’s the nickname they give Brühlsche Terrasse which is a beautiful place to take a walk. This used to be the city’s fortifications, leading from the Academy of Fine Arts all the way to Schlossplatz where the city’s main gate is located. I caught some artist doing their thing on the steps at the end of Brühlsche Terrasse. I suppose this is a good spot to plant yourself for a picture perfect view of Dresden’s castle district.
  • Great for an afternoon stroll along the river Elbe. Quite touristy, the views clearly don't only attract locals.
  • Great place to hang out and enjoy a little bit the contact with nature.
  • Very nice view on the Elbe River - Drinking beer on the benches is the best thing to do on a sunny afternoon :)
  • Wonderful terrace, wonderful view, but as well too many strange people...
