Beautiful views as cross the bridge.

Dresden is a beautiful city, after almost total destruction in WW II the city was rebuilt with absolute attention to history. Be sure an include Dresden in your travels to Germany.

Augustusbrucke (Augustus Bridge) is the main crossing over the Elbe River, linking the historic city centre (south) to Innere Neustadt (north). You can walk this bridge or take a tram conveniently while sightseeing in Dresden. Historically, there seem to have been bridges located at this location since the 12th century. However, the present 9 arch sandstone bridge was constructed between... More

Augustus Bridge is very old and very massive. It looks very good together with Old towns churches and Terrace. From bridge You can take many panoramic pictures, especially in the evening. The Bridge even has some kind of "Pockets"-so You would't bother anyone with Your camera or selfie-stick. Plese be carefull, when crossing the street- there are a lot of... More

View from Augustusbrücke, the main bridge into the old city of Dresden. From Berlin, I took the DB Bahn (intercity train) and stopped by Dresden on the way to Prague. A pretty popular itinerary in recent years because Dresden only 2 hours away from both Berlin and Prague. Instead of a day trip, I chose to instead spend the night in... More

Augustusbrucke spans the Elbe connecting the major tourist attractions around Theaterplatz with Neustädter Markt. The bridge can be crossed via tram, or is easily walked. It also makes a beautiful element in your photos of much of Dresden's incredible architecture.

The bridge is definitely worth a walk across and you can view the golden statue of Augustus the Great on the other side of the Elbe River

I love this one - it is in a bad shape at the moment but in general the walk over this oldest bridge of Dresden is well worth it - for once on the New side is the Goldener Reiter (the Golden Rider - August the Strong) and when coming back the views towards the old Baroque city and the... More
