Owner description: 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.

“Walk along history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

the Fuerstenzug is hard to miss - it links the Katholische Hofkirche with the Neumarkt and the Frauenkirche - it gives interesting vista's towards both but also tells of a long line of Saxon royal leaders - made entirely of meissen porcelain this is a must see when in Dresden

“Procession of Princes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

Electors and Kings of Saxony from the earliest time. Most were men of war and are shown mounted and with armor. About the middle is Frederick the Wise who sheltered Luther. He is shown walking, with a laurel wreath to indicate his love of learning.

“Exterior Building "Scroll" Easy To Walk By”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

This scroll-like historical tiled wall of the kings and princes of the area from Medieval times to the 18th.C or so was easy to take in as you walk along the streets. Nothing particularly spectacular but interesting how the tile work portrayed some vivid history and personages.

“A wall of historical interest in porcelain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Oner of the highlights of the walk around the Aldstadt is a stroll up Augustusstrasse to admire the "Furstenzug" the world's largest porcelain mural. Created by alchemist Johann Friedrich Bottager, the mural depicts the 35 princes, counts and kings from the House of Wettin. Outdoor event free of charge and suitable for wheelchair users.
