Augustus bridge

Dresden's oldest bridge is connecting the urban districts and municipalities of Dresden's old town with the Zwinger palace and the inner new town with the Dresden Golden Rider - king August the Strong. Nowadays the slightly more eastern Waldschlösschenbrücke bridge is the geographical center of Dresden, Germany's 12th biggest city by population and the fourth-largest as measured by area. Dresden after Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne is actually larger than Munich. It's also home to more Fraunhofer institutes than any other city worldwide. To know Dresden you need to know the Elbe river, so a journey with the historic paddle steamers fleet, the biggest in the world, or an extended ride along the Elbe cycle way towards the Dresden climbing area of Saxon Switzerland near Dresden is highly recommended. Relax, there's enough space for your excellency.
