Meissen - Tag der Offenen Tür

Invitation to the Open Day in the production departments of the MEISSEN Manufactory

The MEISSEN Manufactory is inviting the guests to take a look „behind the scenes“ in the production departments.

The workshops of the production departments are open from 9 am to 5 pm. The perfect craftsmanship with which Meissen Porcelain® is made, can be experienced in the studios of the white production departments and of the porcelain painting departments.

In the mould archive there is the unique opportunity to see about 700.000 moulds from more than 300 years of the Manufactory’s history. Visit the kiln house and see for yourself how the „Crossed Swords“ are still being painted by hand on every single Meissen Porcelain®, just like it was done in 1722.

Limited works of art are created in the MEISSEN® Fine Art departments with the utmost care in exclusive painting styles and with a great love of detail. Unlimited numbers of decorations can be seen on the way through the MEISSEN HOME® deco world. Starting with the legendary Swan Dessin, passing the well-known Onion Pattern of the 18th century and arriving at very modern, hand created picture frames in Meissen Porcelain®.

Especially on the open days, there will be attractive and comprehensive offers for shopping. You can find discounted products in second quality and quality stock at reduced prices in our MEISSEN® Outlet.

Children are invited to use the day to try modelling with porcelain paste or drawing for themselves under the guidance of the experienced staff of the Manufactory.
