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.

If you are in Dresden, you definitely want to see this place. You can't really appreciate it from the pictures because you can't see the individual porcelain tiles. They were not damaged during WWII, so they are the originals. It's a history lesson, especially when you look at the conflict between Catholicism and Protestantism. Look at the tiles marked 1684...

Depicts King Augustus and his like over the course of a few centuries. An epic artwork. This is what real wall art should be!

The mural is very good but not drop-dead. It's not something you needs to go our of their way to see.

Looking at the details of this impressive wall, makes you thankful this masterpiece survived WW II. It is huge, easy to view and is part of what makes Old Town Dresden so unique in the world.

This impressive art work is situated close to Frauenkerchise & is an amazing piece of work which requires a close study of each image which unless you have a good guide with you or have studied it earlier would be difficult to decipher its uniqueness.But over all this mural of the procession of princes from the house of Wettin is...

Well worth seeing as is most of Dresden. I would say take a tour to get the most out of the city or at the very least buy a guidebook. This is an amazing piece of art depicting the Saxony princes. This is now millions of pieces of ceramic tile but was originally a painting. Very impressive.

The Fürstenzug as it is known is a remarkable porcelain artwork (Meissen) which survived the WWII bombing almost intact. Like many things in the city, read up on it in a good guidebook to get a good understanding of who the Wettin princes of Saxony portrayed are.

It's an interesting mural that you don't need to go out of your way to find. If you're walking around Dresden you can't miss it.
