Residenzschloss - Royal Palace, Dresden: 44 reviews and 108 photos
This is a very special feature of the castle.
The neo-Baroque bridge connects the eastern wing of Taschenbergpalais with the southern wing of the castle. It was built during the big make-over of the castle between 1889 and 1901.
Another such bridge connects the castle and the cathedral.
The area around those bridges is called Piazzetta, a clear indication that it reminds a lot of Italy. Dresden?s byname is Elbflorenz, meaning: Florence on the Elbe.
I just imagine August the Strong sneaking to his mistress in Taschenbergpalais via this bridge ;-) But - stop: The bridge was added long after this episode of royal love affairs... ;-)))
