The Procession of Princes, or Fürstenzug in German, is at the Royal Mews. It should not be missed, but, to understand it fully either join a guided tour or take a guide book. It is a 102 metre long mural which depicts a parade of...More

This procession--showcasing the ancestry of the Wettin House--is certainly worth a good look. Some 22000 Meissen tiles were used to replace the original painted version.

I had seen photographs of this Dresden attraction but was not really prepared for the absolute magnificence of the real thing. I walked slowly viewing this mural made from Meissen porcelain tile. It is certainly one of the most beautiful 'urban' works of art in...More

Take a beautiful photo of the city's famous mural. The detail involved will amaze you. You will just stumble across it while exploring the city.

This is a very unique and interesting display. Go in the evening to avoid crowds. It is exceptionally well lighted at night. If you have a steady hand you can walk down the sidewalk and video it.

This magnificent mural is 102 metres long and depicts a parade of rulers between 1127 and 1918. There was a fresco on this wall as early as the 16th century. In the late 19th century it was replaced with sgraffito technique on stucco, but this...More

They're not very big, probably 30x30cm. The tiles are a yellow/beige colour with a geometric pattern on them and the artwork of the Princes is over the top. They're about the size of the tiles that you might see clad on the... More
