The Dresden Elbe meadows as a retreat

The Dresden Elbe meadows were formed by the river over centuries in the Elbe valley and are now a popular retreat and recreation area for Dresden’s inhabitants. In this protected natural area with vineyards, great wildlife, Elbe cycle paths and picturesque scenery, visitors and locals alike find peace and relaxation. Numerous cafés, restaurants and beer gardens along the river also regularly attract large numbers of visitors. In 2004, the Elbe Valley and the Elbe meadows were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The reason for this was the construction of the Waldschlößchen Bridge between 2007 and 2013, which, according to the expert report, destroyed the protected landscape.
