Procession of the Princes (Fürstenzug)
Dresden's famous porcelain mural on the exterior of Residenzschloss palace is a feast for the eyes. The frieze is 102 metres long and 7 metres high, making it the largest porcelain picture in the world. It was first painted in 1876, then transferred onto 25,000 pieces of Meißen porcelain in 1904-1907. Designed as a memorial to the Wettiner royal family, the mural depicts all the Saxon rulers between 1123-1904. Only the last Saxon king is missing; Friedrich August III. Souvenir sellers now ply their trade at the feet of Frederick the Mean, George the Bearded and Co. Free admission.
