The Bruehl Terrace.
The Bruehl terrace is located along the Elba. The fabulous promenade made of former coastal fortifications is often called 'The European Balcony'. The Bruehl Terrace got its name from earl Henry fon Bruehl, who founded his palace and amusement park there in 1739-48. The former ancestral estate that was built for the second prince in the family is also located there. The Academy of Art is built in the neo-baroque style. Visitors are recommended to attend the former arsenal Albertum. Nowadays, the building has been turned into a museum. Earlier one of the best restaurants in the city was situated north-west from The Bruehl Terrace. In 1945 the restaurant was closed. Nowadays, there are plans to restore the 'Belvedere'. Go north from the building, and you will find a wonderful embankment with a beautiful terrace and a mooring line. There are always ships and steamers there. If the weather is fine, a voyage on such a steamer will certainly leave many unforgettable impressions.
If you go downtown and walk along cozy Munzgasse Street, you will eventually find yourself in Frauenkirche at Noitmarkt Square. This round church made of sandstone was built during 6000 days in 1726-1743. The project of the church belongs to architect George Bar. In 1945, during just one night, the church was totally destroyed. When Germany united, it was decided to give Dresden its ancient look back. Therefore, the marvellous Frauenkirche was rebuilt. The reconstruction started in 1994, and the grand opening took place in 2005.
