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.

A walk along this Procession of Princes does not require much time, however, viewing these important historical figures, makes the knowledge aquired in history books become much more relevant. I captured photos of Elector Frederick the Wise who arranged for the banned and outlawed Martin...More

This amazing tile mural shows all the kings of Saxony in a procession. Almost all of Dresden was incinerated by the firebombs of 1945, but these tiles made it through the fire.

Hello, This is a huge wall painting explaining historical Dynasty of many centuries. One must have enough knowledge of German history to understand this. But good efforts taken to explain by paintings. We don't know much of German history but we enjoyed the same. This...More

Quick picture site. Interesting to see. Without a guide I'm not sure what you would get out of it. It's huge.

Really interesting to see how the costumes have changed over the years. This is a free wallpaper painting covering a large area. It shows male soldiers and royalty over hundreds of years. Sadly very few women are depicted. Worth a look at if you are...More

Beautiful wall with great details all around. Good picture opportunity. Only setback is that there a small shops on the opposite side of the street that distract from actually admire the beauty of it.

This mural is very impressive and gives a great timeline of the rulers. Was not crowded at all when we were there mid day on a Tuesday in July. Free and interesting.

At first you think this wall is really fine old art, but when you look closer it seems a little artificial. But never mind, it doesn't hurt your eyes.

They're not very big, probably 30x30cm. The tiles are a yellow/beige colour with a geometric pattern on them and the artwork of the Princes is over the top. They're about the size of the tiles that you might see clad on the... More

Don't get too excited over this mural. It's interesting ... apparently you can see the development of horse breeding through the ages ... and there are the ex stables behind it. However, it's just a wall with ceramic tiles... More
