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.

Remembered from my last visit

I was last in Dresden in 1996 and this stuck in my memory ever since. I was lucky to find this great work of art no more than 100 yards from the hotel that I am staying at.

Beautiful wall/art depicting history in time. Was a lovely walk way and interesting. You cannot miss it whilst on your walkabouts. For some it would be amazing.

Beautiful work of art in tile. Take your time (and a good guide book) to see the history of Saxony's nobility. At times, one is more distracted by the market goods that set up directly across from this wall.

When in Dresden, I noticed that people tend to ignore this beautiful work of art and focus on bigger monuments and buildings. However, it is the largest porcelain artwork in the world and, if you are patient enough, you can read about each ruler of Saxony and enjoy the history on the walls. Beautiful craftsmanship!

Once in Dresden, you can not get around this huge work of art. We only got to take a quick look at it, but it is absolutely worth a visit!

My wife and I were on a guided tour when the lead brought us to the wall. It was hot at the time, and the tall wall offered much-needed shade. Our guide had just spoke to us about the progression of Saxony princes a bit earlier, so that was the perfect lead-in to the pictures depicted on the wall. Very... More

An excellent group of musicians were playing below this glorious façade on a terribly hot summer's afternoon. They made the heat of the day seem less vicious and added to teh beauty of the day.

This is SO amazing. The drawing is excellent. Each person, each horse, is a properly observed creature, not a cypher, in that they all look like individuals. I spent a lot of time admiring it. Often the art to be seen in the streets for free is better by far than the stuff they put in the galleries.

Impressive piece of art, very well conserved and a must see when in Dresden. Close to the river and a important part of the altstadt.
