Porcelain and wine town Meissen

Situated north-west from Saxony’s capital Dresden, Meissen belongs to the most northern wine growing region of Germany in the middle of the heart of the Saxon Wine-street. The smallest wine-growing region of Germany produces high-quality wines. The town is known by the first European porcelain manufacture and its typical “blue swords”. The manufacture received the cultural price Europe in 2008. With its show workshop and museum it is a true tourist magnet. Over and over sight of the cathedral of the Albrecht's castle appear between the houses. Today this presents a museum with impressive interior decoration and a wall picture of the 19th century which shows events from the history of Saxony, the Wettiner and the Albrecht's castle. The Albrecht's castle is the cradle of Saxony.
