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 mural shows the lineage of Saxon rulers. It is made up of 25,000 porcelain tiles and covers the back of a wall for a block. Even though it was rebuilt after WWII, it is still very impressive.

An impressive wall just in the city center, there is not much to say. Just that you must see it... and enjoy the center of Dresden...

this block long mural is made of porcelain tiles and show the procession of Saxon/Wettin prince electors of this area. It is obviously a rebuild as everything in this area was destroyed during the Allied firebombing, but it is still a nice surprise along a narrow walkway.

This attraction is more interesting if you have guide, either personal or a guidebook to be told something about the history of the wall and who is who. It is very closely connected with the history of Dresden, so should not be left.

Best way to get around Dresden is by bike and you will certainly spot this wall from one of the Main areas. Beautiful sight

One of the reasons that I love Dresden is all the little details and this is one of those details. An interesting mural to enjoy while you wander down one of Dresden's cobblestone streets.

This processional tile work is likely a reconstruction but is faithful to the style and qualities of the surrounding area. Walk through in the early evening when the bells are ringing....quite unique.

You'l find this near the Frauenkirche, so it won't take much extra time. That said, it's worth the visit.

The mural is an amazing walk through history. It is a mural that chronicles the early history of Dresden. One of the most amazing things is that it survives the fire bombing of Dresden. Our tour guide said that it was a fluke that it happened. It only survived because the mural was done in tile
