Meissen is of course world famous, and so a visit to the factory during our stay in Dresden was a must. For us, the easiest way to travel there was by train from the Hauptbahnhof. A Familientageskarte (family day travel ticket) cost us EUR19, and it was a short interesting 30 minute journey through Dresden to Meissen - interesting to... More

This was a side excursion that we took while visiting Germany, and it was worth the trip seeing how the porcelain was made and to view what the manufacture had produced in the past!

Although we didn't look around the actual factory, we enjoyed looking at all the Meissen porcelains and appreciated all the delicate work that goes into them.

In Manufacture you can see all the procedure to handmake fine porcelains. Besides there is a museum that has a lot of kind of porcelains.e.g dinner service, objects inspired from East, the famous "Porzellan zoo", etc. Also there is a shop with a rich collection of Meissen porcelains.

I have been familiar with the fragile figurines from Meissen for years and looked forward to my visit. We saw the five steps of the totally hand made porcelain products and now have a better understanding of the value of their products. There is a 'seconds' area with discounts and I found a white vase that I could afford and... More

It was interesting to see how the porcelain was still hand made there. The pieces are beautiful but boy are they pricey 😱. I guess it would depend on your interest in the production but to me it was just an ok visit.

The tour is free and well organized. After watching a short video you move through different stations that show you the progressions of a porcelain piece being made. After the tour there is a large museum with hundreds of pieces to see. There's also a large store for purchasing items.

Meissen is one of the places that will appeal more to the ladies then to the gentleman. While the tour is brief they do show you and explain to you how the porcelain is made , fired ,painted and then glazed. After your visit you can visit the outlet store as well as the factory store for as long as... More

We found the tour with a short film and watching the workers making the pieces very interesting. The museum was also beautiful. I didnt know that they produce jewelery and wall paintings. The cost was reasonable for a family. (20 euros for 4)
