The "wondrous" aspect of this bridge that spans the Elbe is its construction. It is one of the first steel suspension bridges in the world requiring no supporting piers in the water.

On a recent trip to Dresden I stayed at the Blue Wonder Hotel which was named after this bridge and is about 800 metres away. That being the case I just had to come and see it. The weekend before I had been to Bristol...More

You can go to this place by every City Tour Bus. There is a hop on station on Körnerplatz. Best way to jump out and use the Standaeilbahn or Schwebeban, all of them are traditional and historic interesting. Near by is the Loschwitz Church and...More

We went over the bridge many times to go to the tram and to go to Saxon Switzerland, to be fair we did not read about the history.

Don't get to excited. Its just a bridge. It is beautiful but its not Prague like views on one side or the other.

We saw this from the steam boat, with commentary from the guide. I'm not sure it's worth a special trip out to see it.

In an area where most bridges are made of stone or concrete the steel bridge is different. It has a nice walkway and easy to cross the river. Not really much to see except that the bridge is old and was not bombed during WW2.

Our "Elbe Princess" had no problems passing under this bridge. The colour was a change from the other Dresden bridges.

Certainly worth a visit in terms of engineering history and aesthetics. It is best seen from the Elbe.

It is one of the beautifulest bridges of Dresden, even though it is not one of the oldest. On both pathways (one gets renewed) you can have amazing views. Also crossing the bridge and going up by the Schwebebahn, the Standseilbahn or by foot you...More
