  • A free attraction in the middle of the altstadt and could take 5-10 minutes. Good to see, a guide book may help explain what it is. can reach this on foot but worth seeing.  more »
  • A beautiful long panel of 1876 Meissen work depicting the royalty of Saxony over a long period, really amazing that this has escaped damage.  more »
