Augustus Bridge used to join Schlossplatz with Neustadt as a crossing over the Elbe River. On my visit to Schlossplatz, the bridge was closed for reconstruction and it looked like it would take quite a while to re-open. A good photo of the bridge and...More

This used to be one of the best attractions in the city, with splendid views as you walked across. It's now dominated by cranes, and although there is still pedestrian access your view is severely obstructed. The nice views of trams sweeping around the historic...More

This historic bridge is currents just for pedestrians and very busy. Work is ongoing, seemingly to turn it into a carriageway, which is perhaps a pity.

Unfortunately I passed the bridge while it underwent a substantial renovation, hence could not really admire its beauty. Still the place if of prime importance as it crosses the unique Elbe landscape, a river that stretches through whole Germany till North Sea. This landscape used...More

At present the bridge is under renovation. However, it is still possible to cross and it was very popular with the locals enjoying their weekend strolls.

The bridge is still accessible on one side as the other side is under renovation. However it offers a real nice view of the city.

It is a major connecting point between the Altstadt and Neustadt of Dresden across the Elbe River. One can still walk over the bridge these days while it is being repaired or renovated (good to see infrastructure being renovated), so that the views from the...More

Can't see much of it--under what look like extensive repais/rebuilding. The trams have been re-routed. Pedestrians and bikes can still cross over.

Currently the bridge is undergoing extensive renovations and it does not look so nice. It is still a magnificent bridge with all the construction that is going on. Now it only takes pedestrians and bicycles, so no other traffic can use it.
