I love walking around old town Dresden and feeling transported back in time. This mural is apparently over 100 years old (original was painted, but in the early 1900s was replaced with tiles) but is in impeccable shape (I thought it was much newer). It...More

This is a fantastic piece of art. Spans the whole length of the building. Very detailed and it just looks really good. Well worth a visit.

This old city of Dresden is one of the best place i ever visited I felt very relax here because the atmosphere was very calm n relaxed. Elbe river edge was very nice for long walk n very peaceful..

Given the (over_-exuberance of so much of Dresden's Baroquerie, this place offers a calm measured presence.

This is amazing. One of the few landmarks that remains mostly in its original condition. A chronological procession of all of the rulers of the area. An awe inspiring piece of art in priceless porcelain. Photos can’t fully capture its beauty because of its massive...More

This mural covers an entire block in the city center. It was a mural painted on 24,00 Meissen porcelain tiles. It illustrated 700 years of Saxon royalty. The individual portraits are very detailed.

This is interesting but not amazing. It can be seen fairly quickly, unless you are a Saxon history buff.

One of my favourite features of Dresden and original, as didn't suffer to much during the bombing. Also free to look at!

Mesmerising. 24,000 china tiles depicting the city's former royals. Pick up a local guide leaflet to shed further light on the fate of each king. An intriguing stop on a city tour.

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

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
