We took the train from Dresden and toured the Meissen facility. The tour consisted of a video, individual explanations of how the porcelain is hand painted and the glazing required and the history of the porcelain. The exhibition includes the most comprehensive collection of Meissen...More

Just like other recent reviews this tour of the Meissen building included a fascinating demonstration of making china by hand. Some amazing pieces on show. No wonder Meissen is so expensive. Some may think the china only appeals to ladies. Yes my wife loved it...More

Interesting overview of the manufacturing process, including the labour of love of the intricate painting. Apparently years of training are required. Finished products in the extensive gift shop don't come cheap, but that's no surprise after the handiwork.

The tour of the porcelain manufacturing facility that put Meissen on the map is well worth while. The demonstration gives a good sense of all that goes into the lovely creations.

Meissen is a nice, small city but not full of excitement, so we went to the Porcelain Factory. We found it surprisingly enjoyable. The tour showed the process of manufacture by video and then introduced the decorative process in all its stages. It was absorbing...More

Try S-Bahn Direction: Meißen Triebischtal. It'll take about 35 min. Trains run every half hour. Half day is not much but it's better than nothing. Hope this helps. Elena
