This 394-foot mural along the wall in the Royal Mews courtyard depicts a parade of Saxony rulers, some walking, others on horseback. Scratched into stucco by the artist in 1876, the mural was later recast onto porcelain tiles and, incredibly, survived the 1945 bombing of Dresden that destroyed most buildings.

It deserves a visit whenever you visit Dresden. It´s like a museum in the middle of the Street. I recommend going before it get dark so that you can see the small details

This is an amazing sight to see and it is well worth stopping by and taking some time to take in the intricate images. The size of the mural is impressive and it is a must-see sight in Dresden.

We ended up there by accident; It is on an old wall right next to a road not too far from Frankenkirch.

The wall contains pictures of all the kings who ruled the area over the years. One of the symbols of the city of Dresden. It's very easy to get there. Located on a beautiful side street. A must-see place.

Beautiful mosaic wall depicting the historic progression of the Saxony rulers. Worth a quick visit as you tour the historic area. Several vendors set up their kiosks across from the wall, so this is a good place to purchase your Dresden souvenirs.

This procession is well worth visiting. It is absolutely stunning, and so detailed! Even if you can't read the German inscriptions it is beautiful to walk down.

Don't get too excited over this mural. It's interesting ... apparently you can see the development of horse breeding through the ages ... and there are the ex stables behind it. However, it's just a wall with ceramic tiles... More
