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.

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.
