Cross the Augustus Bridge. When you get to the Neustadt side of the river walk to your left along the banks of the Elbe until you see a large red frame. The City of Dresden has created a photo op there so that you can see the exact spot the 18th Century Venetian painter Canaletto created his still famous Panorama... More

I visited in the spring, which was, in my opinion, a perfect time of year. Halfway across the Augustus bridge over the Elba, I sat on the bench and took in the view. WWII wasn't kind to Dresden, but the view is back to its glory days. At least, what I imagine it was like. Very romantic if you happen... More

If you know the painting it is worth taking a stroll to see whee the artist sat to compose his master piece

Sit on the meadow on the left bank of the Elbe (Dresden Neustadt) and take a picnic and plenty of photos during summer evenings.

Head for the Japanesisches Palast and then you look back at the view of the Altstadt. It is only a short walk but hold on to your hat walking over the bridge on a windy day.
