Lovely bridge to walk across.

Went over this bridge to go to the markets. Great to walk across with views of the old and new sides of Dresden. Easy to walk along both sides of the river from this bridge.

The bridge has also been rebuilt following WW2, but it appears 'old' in character, and offers a magnificent view of the Dresden skyline. Get out for that walk to enjoy!

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

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.

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
