At the Meißner Porzellan / Meissen Porcelain Museum near Dresden

Meissen porcelain was a sensation at the time. At last, Europe also succeeded in what the Asians had already perfected – the art of porcelain production. The noble material, mainly used for tableware and decoration, quickly became a status symbol. Porcelain has been produced in Meissen since 1710, and Meissen porcelain is especially well known for its memorable logo of crossed swords. The Meissen State Porcelain Manufactory is still located in the tranquil town of Meissen in the German state of Saxony, near Dresden. Just a short S-Bahn ride from the state capital, the museum and its show workshop can be reached after a short walk of just under 900 meters from the nearest train station, Meissen-Altstadt. The Erlebniswelt Meissen offers not only a store for the finest porcelain place settings and decorative items, but also coffee cups, as well as a show workshop and a museum exhibition. Porcelains of the last centuries are shown in various showcases. From the beginning of the 18th century, to today’s modern creations. But whether modern is really always prettier, each visitor must decide for himself. The classics of porcelain tableware with blue rim are of course represented in any case, as hand-painted works of art, as well as airbrush-sprayed pieces.
Below are some impressions of my visit to the Meissen World of Experience (Meissener Porzellan Erlebniswelt), in picture and video form.

Personally, I can rather advise against a visit to the “Erlebniswelt Meissen”, at least currently. For me, too little is said about the historical background, if, then one must read small signs directly in the showcases, and otherwise only porcelain service and decorations are exhibited. Despite currently closed during the coronavirus pandemic show workshop, the full 12 euros per person entrance fee is still due, clearly too much for two small floors of exhibition about nothing but porcelain. Including the otherwise included audio guide through the show workshop, the entrance fee would be more justified. Also, in the store, on the first floor of the “world of experience” you can not get any obvious bargains, but gets everything, presumably, at the MSRP price. For this, it is not worth coming to Meissen. Why a day trip to Meissen is still worthwhile, you can learn in the Meissen travel tips for a day trip.

Thanks for these pointers. One thing I should also believe is the fact credit cards offering a 0 monthly interest often bait consumers along with zero rate of interest, instant endorsement and easy internet balance transfers, nevertheless beware of the most recognized factor that is going to void your 0 easy street annual percentage rate and as well as throw anybody out into the poor house quick.
