MEISSEN, Europe’s oldest porcelain manufactory with the oldest registered trademark, has a wealth of patterns stretching back more than 300 years to draw upon when creating and meticulously crafting new designs.

The crossed swords applied to Meissen porcelain make it readily identifiable and are proof of its outstanding quality. Meissen porcelain, forever linked to the city on the Elbe that gave it its name, can be experienced on our premises by visitors from all over the world and is a key tourism magnet in Meissen and round about.

You can witness world-famous Meissen porcelain being made in the demonstration section of our House-of-Meissen theme world and, in its Museum, learn all about our history as well as being given a unique rundown of the overall development of Meissen porcelain.

Our stores will give you plenty of inspiration on what to select from MEISSEN’s largest product range and there’s always the enticing option of rounding your visit off with culinary delights from the Meissen café and restaurant.
