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 walkway or painting is very interesting and educational. It provides a visual summary of important characters of the history of Dresden with unique drawings and timeline

The mural occupies an entire wall and is made up of 24,000 tiles of Meissen porcelain. It shows 700 years of Saxon royalty. The names of the nobles and princes are shown beneath their images. Note the Augustus the Strong image. It is more eye-catching...More

The way it was made, and it's representation was very worthwhile hearing about, while you walk by it. Would be an empty experience just to walk by it.

The best way to see old Dresden is by a self-planned and guided walking tour. The Procession of Princes should definitely be included on that walk (great connection between the Frauenkirche and the Palace). This mosaic survived the destruction of World War II, unlike most...More

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
