    It is the view of the old town of Bautzen.
    The Friedensbrücke (Upper Sorbian Móst měra) in Bautzen is one of the larger stone arch bridges in Saxony and, along with the A4 motorway bridge and the bridge of the western bypass, one of the three most important connections crossing the Spree for road traffic in the city. The four basket arches, which are placed on massive pillars and abutments, span the deeply incised and steep-walled Spree Valley at a height of over 20 meters over a length of 181 meters.
    When building the bridge, for design reasons, the variant of a massive stone bridge was preferred to a light, elegant construction, although there were stipulations and requirements for a minimum amount of building materials. The massiveness should do justice to the defiant cityscape of Bautzen. Nevertheless, there were also critical voices, as the usual picturesque townscape on the banks of the Spree was heavily changed in some familiar visual relationships or blocked by the bridge. However, the bridge itself gave new insights into the city of Bautzen. The view from the Friedensbrücke is the most famous motif in the city today and is also one of the most frequently used photo motifs in all of Saxony and can be found regularly on the covers of books or on calendars on the topic of Saxony.
