Overview

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.

This procession is well worth visiting. It is absolutely stunning, and so detailed! Even if you can't read the German inscriptions it is beautiful to walk down.

Just a Place to visit. It’s just around the Frauenkirche Dresden, the Neumarkt the Hilton and Kempinski Hotel Dresden. But, no worry, all Hotels in this area just around the corner.

Part of a great day in Dresden. We were traveling with some seniors that had some challenges walking the cobblestone streets but otherwise the whole day was great and the impressive detail on this artwork was gorgeous.

They're not very big, probably 30x30cm. The tiles are a yellow/beige colour with a geometric pattern on them and the artwork of the Princes is over the top. They're about the size of the tiles that you might see clad on the... More

Don't get too excited over this mural. It's interesting ... apparently you can see the development of horse breeding through the ages ... and there are the ex stables behind it. However, it's just a wall with ceramic tiles... More
