  • The pictures on the wall are the most detail. Porcelain wall.. Knights of the notables of the era depicted. It's a long table.

  • This mural shows the lineage of Saxon rulers. It is made up of 25,000 porcelain tiles and covers the back of a wall for a block. Even though it was rebuilt after WWII, it is still very impressive. 
  • Contains a huge painting on the walls of the building, also was surprised at the size and length. I felt the weight of history can withstand corrosion such as rain and wind, and reigned until today.
