Dresden Loschwitz Bridge (“Blue Wonder”)


The Loschwitz Bridge: The Blue Wonder of Dresden

The Loschwitz Bridge was the fifth bridge over the Elbe, completed in 1893. The original name – King Albert Bridge – was quickly forgotten when the unofficial name “Blue Wonder” prevailed. The name is due to the blue paint and the fact that the bridge was one of the first metal bridges of this size that did not require power piers in the Elbe. The Blue Wonder is considered one of the landmarks of the city of Dresden and remained almost undamaged during the two world wars. The bridge, which is now used by car traffic, has already undergone general renovation in 2019 and is scheduled for further renovation until 2025 to ensure safe use in the future.
