“old town”(21 reviews)
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.

This terrace gives excellent views over the Elbe river,the Augustusbrucke, the main buildings of the Altstadt and across the river to the Neuestadt. A nice stroll,,with shady trees, lots of places to sit and watch the passing parade, cafes, bars etc.

Great meeting point, people watching, or just sit on the stairs and rest from all the site seeing. Cute little bars and restaurant all around.

With a number of benches looking on across the river and a couple of very reasonable restaurants, a stroll along it is a must at sunset.

We really enjoyed strolling this area and observing the intricate carvings that adorned the buildings situated high above the river Elbe. Both the buildings and the river view were a feast for our eyes!
