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.

As processional entries go, this one has to be in the top ten. Overwhelming would be the word that leaps to mind walking down this processional. The story of kings in mural fashion done so well that it takes your attention away from all the tourist kiosks lining the passage. As I noticed the mural, which I didn't at first... More

A long wall with historical paintings from one stretch to another. A brilliant piece of art. I didn't notice it until 10-15 steps walking on its side. It is located at the Castle Walls, facing the river.

I walked right past it on the first occasion!....yes I know,almost an impossible thing to do,but, on the way back when the sun came out there it is. Quite a splendid work of art,make sure that at some point you detour or even better take a guided walking tour.it is well worth it.

This is a fantastic artistic account of the ruling monarchs in Dresden. Incredibly detailed stretching across a long walk in an alleyway it is certainly a fantastic surprise to stumble across while taking in the sights of Dresden.

I loved the whole concept and the artwork that represents a great story and history. Artistically it is a sight to watch and pretty impressive too. I loved walking through these streets and looking at the work as well as taking in the surrounding. It definitely a must visit placed while in Dresden.

It is nice and interesting to stroll along the street and study the porceling art work on the wall. To look at the royals' clothes, the weapons, the horses...etc at ease. Fun, and relaxed. I enjoy it a lot.

I actually stumbled upon the Procession of Princes by accident. It is a pretty awesome piece of artwork to stroll along a passage way and glance at the different representations by year as you walk along it. It's definitely something to see, and a must see if you are in Dresden. A perfect opportunity to look at a great work... More
