The mural on this wall is made of porcelain tiles. There are many thousand tiles on display. Only approximately 600 had to be replaced after the bombing of Dresden. it is almost all original.

This mosaic wall claims to be the longest in the world, it is quite interesting and there are many other attractions nearby to explore as well

They're not very big, probably 30x30cm. The tiles are a yellow/beige colour with a geometric pattern on them and the artwork of the Princes is over the top. They're about the size of the tiles that you might see clad on the... More

Don't get too excited over this mural. It's interesting ... apparently you can see the development of horse breeding through the ages ... and there are the ex stables behind it. However, it's just a wall with ceramic tiles... More
