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. The so-called “Bruhl charms” (Brühlschen Herrlichkeiten) consisted of a gallery, a library, a Belvedere, a palace and a park.

So this section of the defensive structures lost its military significance, passing into the private possession of Count von Bruhl. Continue reading

Verkehrsmuseum Dresden

The Dresden Transport Museum presents exhibits on the history of individual modes of transport on an area of ​​5000 square meters. The institution was opened in 1956. The museum is located in Johanneum, in the historic center of Dresden, on Neumarkt Square.

The history of the Dresden Transport Museum began on May 1, 1952 during the negotiations between the College of Transport and the Ministry of Transport on the construction of a traffic museum in the German Democratic Republic. It was originally planned to create a railway museum from the exhibits of the Saxon Railway, which have been stockpiled since the Second World War. Today, the museum exposition covers all industries related to transportation and, despite the expansion, barely fits in the Johanneum building. Part of the museum’s exposition has been moved to the premises of the historical commodity depot. Continue reading
