Dresden and the Meissen Porcelain Factory Tour

We will start our Dresden and the Meissen Porcelain Factory Tour leaving Berlin heading south after 2.5 hours drive we will arrive in Meissen the cradle of the history of German Saxony.

Walking down the medieval streets we will admire the market square with the medieval Town Hall and the church of Our Lady.

Then we move to the Meissen porcelain factory. During the visit with the audio guide in English we will know all the stages of the porcelain production admiring the incredible skills of the Meissen artists.

In addition, we will contemplate the Dresden Palace, which houses the treasures of the Saxon monarchy. We will continue our walk through the old town heading to the exterior of the Holy Trinity Cathedral or Hofkirche, the largest religious building in Saxony, and through a very curious street, where we will come across the Fürstenzug.
