We woke up after a good sleep at 8 a. m. My train from Halle / Saale (110 km away) would leave at 4.35 p. m., so there was some time left for more sightseeing. Since we were too exhausted the other day to make it at the other side of the river Elbe we decided to go there. But first we had a rich and excellent breakfast at our hotel.

We checked out at 10 a. m. and drove downtown to find a parking place which was easy since it was a sunday morning and most people were still sleeping.

At the banks of the Elbe, not far from the Brühler Terrassen, we found one which was great since every attraction was easy to reach by foot.

We crossed the bridge and saw a huge building, the saxon ministry of finance, which was quiete nice.

There were steps down to the banks of the Elbe and you had a great view from there to the Frauenkirche and other historic buildings.

Next stop was the "Goldenen Reiter" (golden horseman). The statue shows August den Starken (August the strong) who was one of the Wettin sovereigns.

The baroque quarter was very nice to stroll around. In the restored houses you can find craft shops, wine, art etc.

After crossing the Augustusbrücke we arrived the old town again. We were a bit undecided what to do since we've been to all attractions the day before already and time was to short to visit a museum. Well, we bought a cone with icecream and enjoyed the view on the Elbe ;)

At 2 p. m. it was time to leave Dresden and heading north to Halle were Klaus dropped me off at the central station. The weekends are definitely too short :( Especially when you have fun.
