Brühlsche Terrasse

The Brühl Terrace (Die Brühlsche Terrasse or Brühl-Terrasse) is the architectural ensemble of the historic promenade in Dresden, one of the most popular tourist attractions of the city.

The Bruhl Terrace, or Bruhl Terrace, is located in the center of the old town, on the banks of the Elbe River. The Bruhl Terrace is 500 meters long between the bridges of Augustus (Augustusbrücke) and Karol (Carolabrücke).

Today’s embankment architectural complex has historically been part of the fortifications erected around the city wall in the 16th century. In 1750, the then Prime Minister of Saxony, Heinrich von Brühl, commissioned the architect Johann Christoph Knöffe to design a palace and park complex on site for fortifications for his own needs.

Unter den Linden

Unter den Linden is the most famous Berlin boulevard, several of the city’s most famous sights are concentrated here. It stretches for about one and a half kilometers in the very center of the city – from the Brandenburg Gate to the Museum Island.

Today Unter den Linden is Berlin’s main “calling card”.
The name of the street in literal translation from German means – “Under the lime trees.” It appeared after the Elector Friedrich Wilhelm decided to improve the road on which he regularly traveled to his Tiergarten hunting grounds in the 17th century. According to the Dutch model, a thousand lindens and a thousand walnut trees were planted in three rows along the road. At that time, almost the entire road was outside the city walls.
