The Former Royal Suite

The premises of the former suite of Prince Gunther I. in the southern “Beletage” show partly reconstructed Baroque rooms where furniture and numerous pieces of art, of the royal collection from the18th century, are presented.

The shining splendor of Excellent sliced goblets created by German masters from the first half of the 18th  century - for example the Thuringian glass cutter Alexander Seifferd, Samuel Schwartz and A. F. Sang - is a pleasant contrast to the rest of the painted dark strips of wallpaper on the walls of the same period.

Inside the rooms you will find besides the old royal jewels a collection including several display cabinets, an Italian and an English bracket clock barometer as well as portraits of German and European monarchs. A "Well Come” present in the form of a golden eagle trophy, Flemish tapestries and two portraits of the royal couple Count Günther XLI, the Valiant (1529-1583), who built the Renaissance castle Neideck, and his wife Catherine of Nassau (1543-1624) take us back to the Renaissance ages.
