    This area is also called the "balcony of Europe". It lies in the old town at the Elbe river, next to the pier from where you can do an excursion by boat. There are several cafés and from this terrace you have a nice view on the Elbe river and the "new town" (which actually is also old) on the other side. Below the Bruehl's Terrace, there's the museum of Dresden Fortress.

    Br��hlsche Terrasse, Lemon Squeezer & Frauenkirche
    2 more images

    This 500 metre long terrace overlooking Elbe river is called the "Balcony of Europe". From here you can enjoy nice views over the old town as well as the bridges and the new town. Go for a walk and enjoy the statues and the benches and terrace cafes.

    Behind the terrace you find the building of the art academy. Because of it's strange dome people call it the "Lemon squeezer".

    Also called the 'Balcony of Europe'. Famous for its magnificent and scenic view upon the Elbe valley. The tarrace was built 1739 - 1748 on the bastion as a garden of recreation by the Earl of Brühl. In the vaults below the bastion Johann Friedrich Böttcher invented the European Porcelain ("The white gold") in 1708.

    View from the Br��hlsche Terrassen on Frauenkirche

    The Brühlsche Terrassen (Brühl Terraces) are a great place to enjoy the panorama on river Elbe. They were originally built as private pleasure grounds in 1739-48 - imagine having them as your private garden! Today, they are the area of the most expensive restaurants in Dresden and a very popular place to see and be seen. Check it out!

  • The Balcony of Europe

    by KituAdventures Written Jan 12, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Bruhlshce Terrasen stretches along the River Elbe, passing some of Dresden's loveliest builings (note the glass dome of the Exhibition Building), affording spectacular views of the new town over the river. These views, along with the numerous cafes along the promenade, have lead to the nickname "The Balcony of Europe".

    Dresden

    If you cross the bridge you will get lovely views over the city - I love just wandering around new cities and taking in the feeling of new places. We usually spend the first day this way before we explore museums etc.

    Brühl Terrace

    It is called The 'Balcony of Europe' and it's famous for its magnificent view of the Elbe valley. It was built on a section of the former
    City fortifications on the left-bank of the river as a gift from the Elector to Count Brühl.

    Gottfried Knöffler designed the terrace as a Baroque pleasure garden. A legend claim that Augustus the Strong left his thumbprint in the wrought-iron railings of the terrace.

    BRUHL TERRACE

    by Audrey118 Written Feb 25, 2003
    The Augustus bridge from Bruhl Terrace

    Here I am standing on the Bruhl Terrace, but I could not get a great picture becos of many tourists posing everywhere. You can stand here, which is also known as the "Balcony of Europe" which is at the southern end of the Augustus Bridge.

    A great staircase leads you from the end of Augustuss strasse to the Bruhl Terrace. The name Burhl came from the Count Henry von Bhurl who was the prime minister during the Augustus the Strong who had the terrace laid out in aacordance wtih the plans of the renowned Baroque architect Knoffel to form what Goethe called the balcony of Europe.
    A new parliament sits above the site which was once the Bruhl Palace.

    Below the terrace is the Munzgasse....

    Br��hlsche Terrasse

    The Brühlsche Terrasse is also called: the Balcony of Europe. It used to be reserved just for the nobles of Dresden, but now it is open to the public.

    Along the 'Brühlsche Terrasse' you find many museums:
    the Gemäldegalerie Neue Meister and
    the Grüne Gewölbe both located in the Albertinum.

    The BRUEHLISCHE TERASSEN! Here you can walk or just looking. On the one hand you will have a very nice view to the river Elbe and on the left side you will see some of the historical buildings.
