Owner description: 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.

“Beautiful tilework”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The mosaic tiled wall called the Procession of Princes is absolutely beautiful to look at and the best thing of all is that is completely free.

“Impressive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I was impressed by this mural, which is the largest porcelain artwork in the world. It's made of about 23,000 Meissen porcelain tiles.
The mural displays the ancestral portraits of the 35 margraves, electors, dukes and kings of the House of Wettin between 1127 and 1904.
You should see it without fail if you are in Dresden.

“Impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I really like the city center of Dresden having lots of monumental buildings. Walking through them, suddenly you see this wall with the impressive art on it. I don't have deep information about this royal family. It may mean more to the German or history lovers. But members are depicted nicely. Shouldn't be missed. It's on the way to River Elbe.

“800 years of history on the wall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This tourist attraction is located in the very centre of the historical town, you can't miss it.
It is well restored. There is depicted 800 years of history of the Wetting dynasty (Saxony's ruling family) from the 12th to the early 120th century. You can see 35 noblemen there, accompanied by soldiers and other people.
