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.

Beautiful artwork to see as you are walking around Dresden. Shows the history of the area. Was amazed by the size of the work.

A wonderful artwork on local ceramic/tiles. Depicts the kings but also the fashion. Worth a stop when in Dresden

This wall is decorated with the exclusive and expensive porcellan "Meissen". The procession of Princes are made from the porcellan "meissen". It is very old and you can see the high quality of Meissen on this wall.

This magnificent mural which catalogues the state rulers is an interesting stroll through history. A walk along the years - appreciating the scale and characters - is an interesting way to grasp some understand of the state's past.

This is on the side of a wall and best captured at night as it is lighted and the crowds are non extent. This is interesting but not a time sink at all.

Read about Procession of Princes on Tripadvisor before our visit. When we arrived, this is really beautiful and a sight to behold. An unique attraction which is probably not found anywhere esle. Glad that a lot of attractions in Dresden survived through the 2 World...More

The Procession of Princes is quite an unique experience. We haven't seen anything similar anywhere so far. Very informative.

Thousands of porcelain times present an interesting tale of the rulers of Dresden from medieval times forward. You could tell if a ruler was a good or a bad one by looking under the ruler. If there is a rose, he was a good ruler....More

The wall of mosaic tiles documenting the historic leaders of Saxony must be a 100 meters long and truly unique.

A very interesting wall of titles, representing several historical figures. It is complex piece whose total understanding will require some preparation!

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
