Porcelain and wine town of Meissen
Down the Elbe from Dresden lies the picturesque location on the Elbe, the cradle of Saxony – the city of Meissen. The Meißner Albrechtsburg is considered the most important late Gothic secular building and the oldest castle in Germany. The Meissen Cathedral is one of the most valuable sacred monuments of the Middle Ages in Saxony. The porcelain carillon at the Meißner Frauenkirche is the first playable porcelain carillon in the world, made from the “white gold”.

The place looks back on over 700 years of history, which was largely shaped by the Wettins. The Saxon electors built a hunting lodge here, which over the years has been expanded and equipped with ever more splendid furnishings. In the center of Moritzburg is Moritzburg Castle on an island of impressive size and with a magnificent interior. The little pheasant castle and the small lighthouse testify to the playful and splendid festivities that the Saxon court gave here. Horse breeding also has a long tradition in Moritzburg, and since 1928 the state stud has hosted the annual stallion parade in September.
