Dresden Brühl’s Terraces


On the balcony of Europe - Dresden's Elbe Terraces

The Brühl’sche Terrasse in Dresden offers tourists a very special perspective on the city – quite different from the well-known baroque buildings for which Dresden is known worldwide. The Elbe Terraces are an almost subterranean-looking stone fortress that dates from the Renaissance period and is also called the “Balcony of Europe”. The terrace was only opened to the public in 1814 and reopened after a long break at the end of November 2019. The current exhibition “Festivals. Dramas. Catastrophes. Closer than ever.” uses elaborate projections on the fortress walls and a unique audio show to show the history of Dresden’s fortress in an impressive way.
