Brühl's Terrace is a historic architectural ensemble in Dresden, Germany. Nicknamed "The Balcony of Europe", a name which was first thought up and used at the beginning of the 19th century and which since then has been used in all kinds of literature. The terrace stretches high above the shore of the river Elbe.
Another building in the center is George's Gate and leads to Dresden's Castle which is one of the oldest buildings in Dresden and has been the residence of the Electors (1547-1806) and Kings (1806-1918) of Saxony.
A staircase with four sculptures (The Four Times of Day) leads from the Castle Square (lot of people with their umbrellas) up to Brühl's Terrace. The statue on the left symbolises morning, hence Morning Statue. The central female figure is wearing the morning star in her hair. The girl to her left stretches just woken up to her sandals, the girl on her right pours a flower with morning dew.
