This is an interesting place to visit even if you are "not into" porcelain. Upon entering you first see Saxonia, the Statue of Liberty which has 8000 handmade blossoms on her dress...lovely. We then went into the workshops to see how the porcelain is made....More

Meissen porcelain is the first European hard-paste porcelain. Make your trip from Prague to this exploring little manufacture! Its name is known especially by famous onion pattern on plates. You will see workers right during their job.

How do I get from Dresden to Meissen and how long does it take. If I have only half day, is it enough time?

Try S-Bahn Direction: Meißen Triebischtal. It'll take about 35 min. Trains run every half hour. Half day is not much but it's better than nothing. Hope this helps. Elena
