Straddling the Elbe around 25km northwest of Dresden, Meissen is the cradle of European porcelain manufacturing and still hitches its tourism appeal to the world-famous china first cooked up in its imposing castle in 1710. But even those left unmoved by August the Strong's 'white gold' will find the impressive position of the town compelling, with its soaring Gothic cathedral, fairy-tale castle and wonderful Elbe Valley views.
