The settlement is a small village, but what is most notable is the landmark from which it derived its name―the bridge that arches across the Karth River there. When crossing the bridge, a giant statue of a dragon's head is on an arch over the roadway in the middle, hence the name. From there, Solitude is visible above the mouth of the river as towers in the distance.
Dragon Bridge is one of the four places where the Headless Horseman appears and is a key point in several quests such as the killing of the Emperor. A note indicating the location of the Moth Priest, who is essential for the Dawnguard quest "Prophet," will be found on a road just past the town's bridge.

This section contains bugs related to Dragon Bridge (Skyrim). Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- Upon rare instances when fast traveling to Dragon Bridge, several dragons may simultaneously appear and attack you.
- When fast traveling with a horse to Dragon Bridge, the horse may appear in front of the bridge while the Dragonborn arrives in front of the village.
- Blood Dragon corpse may appear in the middle of the village. The first time it is encountered, it releases a soul, but the corpse will be there every time the Dragonborn returns, with skin (not releasing a soul). Even if the Raise Zombie glitch is used to send the body flying, it will respawn in the same place. A random
- Occasionally the bridge will become untouchable, causing the Dragonborn to fall through and making it impossible to cross.
