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.

historically interesting and extremely well done. Worth having a guide if you can manage it unless you are terribly well versed in history

Located in the centre of the old town on a public street. It's been impeccably restored to its former glory and well worth exploring by daylight or night.

The Procession of Princes (Fürstenzug) is a huge mural originally painted during the seventies of the nineteenth century by Wilhelm Walther to celebrate the eight hundredth anniversary of the Wettin Dynasty inasmuch as the rulers of Saxony during all the period concerned had appertained to the same. The original picture was stucco which rapidly deteriorated owing to weather inclemency. Therefore... More

This is a beautfiful porcelain relief and one of the joys in the Altmark. Most of which can be experienced in a few hours.

It really is amazing the thousands of tiles that were used to record the history. It is worth taking a moment to visit and take a picture.

This is quite impressive and covers a long stretch of wall. Pity about the scaffolding at one end but - but a good walk.

This was just a interesting thing to stop and see while I was down by the Zinger. It is a mural of the nobles of Saxony. It isn't really a destination type of place. But there are many other worthwhile things to see in this area. So it is worth the stop to look as it is not out of... More

While some may disagree with the analogy, this beautiful tiled wall is similar to the Bayeux Tapestry. You walk along it and see history, beautifully captured, before your eyes.

A great attraction and free to admire in the center of the old Dresden city. A fine piece of Saxon-Meissen "china" art. It must have cost a lot of efforts to create this line up of 100 meter long Saxon kings, princes and senior staff (Fürstenzug) depicted in 25.000 tiles! A must see when visiting Dresden in the Augustinusstrasse.
