  • 8€ is entrance fee, the audio guide is included in price . First room is really impressive. All museum is interactive with audio and video , great place , two floors full of art!  more »
  • A compulsory point for sightseeing in Mißen. Near the castle. As for the combined ticket is more profitable to buy a ticket for the castle and Manufaktura porcelain and a ticket to Kedra separately. Recommend

  • It's very nice beautiful little city with amazing views, cafes, restaurants and hotels. Many activities take place in Meißen according to the time of the year so you have to just check it. Definitely worth the visit :)
  • The guided tour to the tower was impressive, thanks very much to the lady who kindly & candidly explained the history over google translation. Views from above are truly breathtaking; we were told that the tower has the most expensive bell, weighs over 7800 kg. PS: If any of Meissen Cathedral staff reads this please say big thank you to our guide- a lady from Meissen who also told us about her visit to India.
