The visit to the Meissen porcelain factory - the biggest and oldest in Europe - and museum was beautiful and interesting. To observe the incredible amount of talent, patience and dedication of the Meissen craftsmen is a privilege I did not think I would ever have. Each piece that comes out of their hands is perfect.
The museum presents a collection of beautiful pieces including the largest porcelain statue in the world. The only downside to the Meissen porcelain is it's price but considering the work is 100% hand made it's justified.
