Meissen is a nice, small city but not full of excitement, so we went to the Porcelain Factory. We found it surprisingly enjoyable. The tour showed the process of manufacture by video and then introduced the decorative process in all its stages. It was absorbing...More

Try S-Bahn Direction: Meißen Triebischtal. It'll take about 35 min. Trains run every half hour. Half day is not much but it's better than nothing. Hope this helps. Elena
