Visit the Royal Palace of Dresden to observe the Parade of the Princes(Fürstenzug); one of the longest and most symbolic works of art of the city.
The Fuerstenzug (or the “Parade of the Princes”) is a 102 meter (335 ft.) long mural composed of approximately 25,000 individual mosaics that holds the record for being the world’s longest porcelain works of art.
This enormous mural decorates an entire wall of the old royal palace and is considered the most important of its kind in Germany. The Fuerstenzug (or the “Parade of the Princes”) is a 102 meter (335 ft.) long mural composed of approximately 25,000 individual mosaics that holds the record for being the world’s longest porcelain works of art. When visiting the Fuerstenzug and seeing the detail and the measures that have been taken to conserve it, we discover the history of the Saxon royalty that is shown on the mural. The Fuerstenzug is located on the outer wall of the old stables of the palace, so you could see it without entering the palace.
As you walk along the cobblestone floor of the Fuerstenzug (Augustusstrasse) the size of the mural can be appreciated. Although a mural on the wall of the stables already existed long before, it wasn’t until the end of the 19th century that WilhelmWalther was appointed to paint a representation of Saxony’s 35 rulers. You can find a self-portrait of the artist at the end of the parade. Walther included himself as the last of the 93 people whoappears on the mural.
The mural managed to survive the destruction suffered by a large part of the city during the bombing of Dresden in 1945, and today is one of the city’s main landmarks to visit.
Due to the rapid deterioration which the mural suffered by the end of the century, porcelain mosaics were placed instead of painting it to make sure that the image was preserved. The mural managed to survive the destruction suffered by a large part of the city during the bombing of Dresden in 1945, and today is one of the city’s main landmarks to visit.
After seeing the entire mural, you may enter the royal palace to discover more historical works of art. Since its reconstruction at the end of World War II, the palace has become the Palace of Art and Science, and holds a large collection of coins, weapons, and paintings.
You may visit the Fuerstenzug every day, and there is no fee to see the mural. To enjoy the best views of the mural, visit this landmark during the day. It is better to arrive by tram or truck to this historic site, since it is difficult to find parking on the street during these busy hours.
