Procession of Princes is a 102 m (335 ft) mural depicting a parade of the rulers of Saxony. The 35 portraits from the House of Wettin originally were painted between 1871 and 1876. Between 1904 and 1907, the painting was replaced with about 23,000 porcelain tiles. That makes it the largest porcelain artwork in the world.

  • What a great idea, I think we should have one like this in England. A nice display of past kings, showing the changes in dress etc.

  • Loved it! It is the best and at the same time simplest way to enjoy the history in Dresden. Walk through the history of Saxon simply by walking by this piece of art. I cannot put it into words how interesting it was, especially if somebody plays some nice music in the background. It's also located at the heart of Dresden with very easy accessibility to a lot of restaurants and Frauenkirche. It'd be great to take a walk in the area every morning and have a headstart every day.
  • It's a masterpiece of its time. It's a wall 🧱 portraying the various dukes and Kings of Dresden since 17th century. Its made up of 23000 porcelain tiles and the interesting fact is this wall escaped from the bombings during the world war when more than 80% of Dresden was broken and burnt down to ashes.. It is a must see attraction in the old city of Dresden.
