Celebrating Saxony’s traditions in white: milk, wine, & porcelain (IG)

As part of the pre-conference tour for the GTM15 (Germany Travel Mart), I am exploring culture and traditions in the German state of Saxony. I’ve written about exploring the bright side of Dresden, and celebrating Saxony’s culture with beer and the Sorbian minority.

It’s touted as the most beautiful milk store in the world. At the Pfund brothers’ milk store in Dresden’s Neustadt, the stunning Villeroy and Boch tiles on the ceiling and walls suggest the truth of the claim since 1880.

We move out to the town of Radebeul and a little beyond to Schloss Wackerbarth and Saxony state’s own wine production facility where almost one-quarter of all wines sold at Wackerbarth are white Rieslings.

At the porcelain manufacturing centre in the town of Meissen, a majestic porcelain statue of “lady Saxony” stands proudly to represent the Saxon state, and comes complete with thousands of handcrafted porcelain blossoms (Haus Meissen).

I made all of the photos above on 23 April 2015. I’m grateful to Germany Tourism and Dresden Marketing for supporting and providing the activities. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at as
