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).

The museum building, built in 1855 by the design of Friedrich August Stüler, a student of the famous architect Karl Schinkel, is considered the most significant urban building in the style of late classicism. In addition, the New Museum today is an example of constructive and technical solutions for museum spaces – a spacious glass roof made it possible not only to visually expand the room, but also to maximize the illumination of exhibits.
