    Be sure to watch the prince train at night. Worth seeing without souvenir stands and the masses of tourists.

    "The Fürstenzug in Dresden is a larger-than-life picture of an equestrian procession, applied to around 23,000 tiles made of Meissen porcelain. The 102 meter long work of art, which is the largest porcelain mural in the world, represents the ancestral gallery of the 34 margraves, dukes, electors who ruled in Saxony between 1127 and 1873 and kings from the family of the Princely House Wettin.

    The Fürstenzug vividly shows all the patriarchs in the history of Saxony. For all history buffs the visit of the Fürstenzug and the castle is a must.

    Not to be missed and historically a real highlight. Especially at night it is twice as great when lighting.

    The prince's procession in Dresden is a larger than life picture of a cavalry procession, applied to around 23,000 tiles made of Meissen porcelain. The 102 meter long work of art, considered to be the largest porcelain mural in the world, depicts the ancestral gallery of the 34 margraves, dukes, electors and kings from the dynasty of the Wettin dynasty who ruled Saxony between 1127 and 1873.

    The Fürstenzug is located on Augustusstrasse, not far from the Frauenkirche, between Georgentor on one side and the Johanneum on the other. Here it was installed in its current form in 1907 on the outside of the stable courtyard of the Dresden Residenzschloss.

    The prince procession in Dresden
    They ruled Saxony: The 35 margraves, dukes, electors and kings of the Wettins are shown together on the 102 meter long picture. The special thing about it: It consists of 23,000 tiles made of Meissen porcelain, making it the largest porcelain picture in the world. The Fürstenzug fills the entire Augustusstrasse between the Georgentor and the Johanneum and is so detailed that you can look at it for a long time and discover a lot.
