  Port Map

Meissen is a town of around 30,000 inhabitants, located 25 km (16 miles) northwest of Dresden on both banks of Elbe river in the Free State of Saxony, eastern Germany. The city is the home of Meissen porcelain, Albrechtsburg castle, Meissen Frauenkirche and Gothic Meissen Cathedral. Große Kreisstadt is the capital of Meissen district.

Meissen is sometimes called the "cradle of Saxony". The city is famous for the manufacture of porcelain, that is based on extensive local deposits of kaolin (china clay) and potter's earth (potter's clay). Meissen porcelain was the first ever high quality porcelain manufactured outside of the Orient. In 1710 the first European porcelain was produced in Meissen, when by decree of King Augustus II the Strong, Royal-Polish and Electoral-Saxon Porcelain Factory was opened in Albrechtsburg. In 1861, it was moved to Triebisch river valley of Meissen. Today, the porcelain factory can still be found there. Along with porcelain, it also manufactures other ceramics.
