Not very easy to work out the flow of this collection, but had lots of nice pieces and presentation style for pieces was good. In a beautiful setting, so look out the windows as well.

Considered one of the best collections of porcelain in the world with more that 20,000 pieces, the Porzellansammlung is housed in the Zwinger complex. While the focus is on German porcelain from Dresden and nearby Meissen, the blue and white oriental collection is outstanding with...More
