The gilded mirrored ballroom was built between 1765-1770 and has survives intact. it is widely regarded as the most artistically significant Rococo ballroom in Germany. Carl Albert von Lespilliez was the architect of the Schaezlerpalais.

  • Visited during the first Sunday of the month. It was only 1€ entrance fee. The were so many beautiful paintings and the Ball room was fantastic.
  • Good place , the fest hall is really beautiful.Would have been a little more enjoyable, if there were english translations as well for all the exhibits.
