Meissen is really lovely with a great castle (Albrechtsburg) and a famous collection of Meissen-porcelain in "Staatliche Porzellan-Manufaktur"
and in Meissen you could also buy a great traditional pastry, called FUMMEL...
August der Starke had a post-rider, who was drinking quite a lot, and in order to control him , he asked the bakeries in Meissen to create a very thin pastly that might easily break, when it is not carried carefully...
You may still buy this pastry ONLY in Konditorei Zieger for about 2 Euros, it is big like a loaf of bread, but very light and really thin ( & it survived several days in my car)
It is a funny souvenir, BUT I would NOT recommend it for a great taste , it actually tastes like nothing !
