There is a Porcelain Museum with an
Exhibition Hall and Demonstration Workshops inside the Manufacture.
It might be interesting for those who cherish porcelain/china - we only had a glimpse inside, because we thought, that the entrance fee was quite high....
For more information have a look at the manufacture's website! It is very well done!
The oldest still operating tin foundry in Saxony is to find in Meissen's Burgstrasse. It was founded in 1792. You can see a little show if you're asking (friendly!).
What to buy: pewter, tin-soldiers, just souvenirs!
Meissen is an upscale city so the shops tend to be expensive but it's a great place to window shop and you're bound to do some as you wander around the old town.
What to buy: Wine is one thing you will want to buy.
What to pay: $5 to $15 per bottle for a good white wine.
This narrow cobblestone street leads from the center to the castle. To the left and right you find numerous tiny shops selling local crafts like Meißen Porcelain, local wine and Meißner Fummel.
