  • When I looked at the description of this place in Internet, I liked it: A long path along the river bank on a hill above it with very beautiful views of a part of the city on the other side, to the river itself with ships floating on it, and with various beautiful historical architectural buildings on the other side (on the terrace). There are also several cafeterias and one very good restaurant, where my wife and I had dinner. This place is very beautiful and interesting for walking so I highly recommend visiting it just for walking, and if you plan to invite a girl on a date. I don’t know how it was about sunrise, I wasn’t at this time here, but the evening sunset looks good.
  • So, my expectations was much higher before i went there, cuz i saw a lot of magnificent shots of this place. In reality it's not as good looking like in those pictures. But. It's still a great place to visit. I spent there a half of hour just relaxing and some more time trying to photographe this gorgeous architecture.
  • Face of historical city Dresden. Its a great terrace on the brink of Elbe river, where you can have a majestic view of city and river. Its a must go place for visitors, as it is very close to the other historical monuments of Dresden. Visit this place to have an idea of the capital city of old and famous kingdom of Prusia.
  • This terrace walk was so relaxing and the spectacular view simply boosts us.
  • This is one of many beautiful historic places in Dresden with a wonderful view over the river Elbe and part of the old as well as the new town.
