Meißen is a medieval gem. Majestically the castle and the cathedral are looking onto the river Eleb. Meißen is the cradle of Saxony. It is here that Saxony was founded and here is also the home of the first European porcelain manufacture.
It is my pleasure to take you there and give the glimpse of the medial city of Meißen with its ancient castle, famous cathedral and narrow streets and medial buildings. And we invite you to the workshop of Europe's first Porcelain Manufacture to see the splendour and learn about the manufacturing process.
From the top of the castle hill you can enjoy a unique view onto the city and the vineyards. Why not tasting a glas of Meißen wine?
In the continuation of the tour we go to see the castle of Moritzburg, the famous hunting lodge of the Saxon Court. Situated on an Arcadian island and housing a valuable collection of antlers and original furniture it gives a wonderful idea of the life at the Saxon court.

I found Heidi to have a very good understanding of the Meissen manufacturing and decorating procedures. She spoke wonderful German and explained the things that interested me the most, like the figure of Saxonia. She helped me take pictures of the most interesting pieces with me standing by them. We went to the City Hall and toured that wonderful city-its castle, and famous cathedral. Later, we went to the castle of Moritzburg and saw how the Saxon Court lived. A great tour. Keith Bankwitz
