Meißen Tourist Information

At a glance

The City of porcelain and wine Meissen looks back on thousand years of history.

The city owes its foundation to the German King Heinrich I, who in 929 ordered a castle to be built. In 1423, Meissen became royal seat of the Saxon electors. That is why Meissen is considered to be the cradle of Saxony. This is underlined by prominent sights.

Meissen is also a wine-growing city. Delicious wines are ripening on the steep mountains of one of Germany's smallest wine-growing areas - another trademark of the 1000-year-old city on the Elbe.
