Meissen Germany

An Underrated Place to Go

Meissen, the Capital of Porcelain, is an underrated town. Located 25 miles from Dresden, the hilly, 11 centuries old Saxony German settlement proved me wrong, underrated came to mind. Why? I had little expectations for a day trip. With only 30,000 inhabitants, pleasant surprises come from small packages comes to mind, picturesque scenes, wine tasting and a bit of upscale shopping at the Meissen Shop.
