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.

I stumbled upon this art installation and glad I did. Majestic and impressive. A small section was being restored but that did not distract.

I walked past this many times on holiday and thought that looks good but when I actually got a tour guide to tell me about it then I looked even closer and it was more than art, it showed all the princes and kings on horseback, significance was place on the background e.g one of the kings was crushing a...

Gotta see it also. Can do so in a short time, but it's more rewarding with a guide to explain what you're seeing.

This is an area that you will most probably be walking in as you visit Dresden. It is pretty to look at and you might want to take a picture. It is outside you walk past it and admire it and that's it.

Seven centuries of Saxon royalty painted on 24,000 Meissen porcelain tiles showing the evolution of weaponry and clothing is a terrific viewing.

located in old city area, as I recommended for the "Zwinger", take a walk and combine these two attractions, this attraction is also for free.

I think the other buildings around the area were more interesting. But it's for free and you can pass by it as you roam around the Old Town

Dresden is one of the most picturesque cities I've ever been to; there are amazing buildings everywhere you turn. The Procession of Princes is in the city centre and shows 93 members of royalty and is beautifully adorned.

We came across this large mural by chance, in the Augustusstrase. The mural is impressively long, 102 m, and lines whole building. It depicts Processsion of Princes of Furstenzung, rulers since 1127. It's really interesting to see the change of clothes and headware as the periods change to modern time. The last ruler depicted is Friedrich August III, the last... More
