The last remains of the original fortification wall offers a great place to relax with outstanding river views. It is now a terrace off the old town along the Elbe River.

It was hot for two days whilst I was there. I enjoyed this terrace super views of the dome and generally a good place to stop and reflect after busy Museum vists. Nearby parks and the Elba.
