The outside wall of the Langer Gang, the long passage which connects the Dresden Castle (Residenzschloss) with the stables,is home to one of Dresden's most famous sights. It is the Procession of Princes (German: Fzug), a mounted procession of the rulers of Saxony.
Originally constructed in 1589, then, between 1871 and 1876, painted, the porcelain manufacture of Meissen transferred a picture of the painting on 23,921 Meissen porcelain tiles to make the work weather proof (between 1904 and 1907). During the World War II bombardments only 654 tiles were broken. In 1978-1979 the mural was restored in its original beauty.
TheProcession of Princes is the most effective way I've ever come across, to force passers-by to remember who made this city.
