The Fürstenzug (German for "Procession of Princes") in Dresden, Germany, is a large mural of a mounted procession of the princes of Saxony, made out of 25,000 Meißner porcelain tiles. 102 metres (335 ft) long and 9.5 metres (31 ft) high, it is one of the largest porcelain artworks in the world. It shows the thousand year history of the Princely house of Wettin. The mural is located in the Augustusstraße in Dresden, between the Semperoper, Hofkirche and Georgentor, with theDresden Frauenkirche on the other side. The picture was only minimally damaged in World War II. Today it is one of the most visited attractions in Dresden.
