Meissen is a small town in the east of Germany, best known for its porcelain factory, the first in Europe.

The old town is a charming mix of cobbled streets, half-timbered houses and Gothic churches, and the river Elbe flows through the centre. The Albrechtsburg castle, perched high on a hill above the town, is a must-see, as is the Meissen Cathedral, with its distinctive green and white tiles. There are plenty of shops and restaurants in the town, and Meissen is a great base for exploring the surrounding countryside.
