It takes roughly 10 minutes to walk from Meissen’s ancient city centre to the Porcelain Manufactory and Museum.
We can be reached within about 20 minutes from the top of the hill at Albrechtsburg Castle.
For cyclists, we are within about 10 minutes of the Elbe Cycleway. There are bike-and-ride boxes and an e-bike charging station (Roßmarkt) in the city centre (below the Kaendlerpark, on Elbstraße where it meets the bridge and on Roßmarkt).
There are two Deutsche Bahn stations in the vicinity of the Meissen Porcelain Manufactory, Meißen-Altstadt and Meißen-Triebischtal. S1 services run in accordance with the timetable in force at the time. We are a 10-minute walk away from both stations. The route is signposted.
