Rococo Hall

The historical rococo hall had already been closed to visitors on July 31st 2004, because it was to be restored by the end of 2007, along with the rest of the building.

The process of clearing out the rococo hall had not begun at the time of the fire. Five weeks later, all of the books and art works would have been moved out – a tragic circumstance.

The Allianz Cultural Foundation is supporting the reconstruction of the rococo hall:

Here are the spatial impressions of the rococo hall, which expands over three floors. It is an all-encompassing piece of art of the late 18th century, in which visual art, architecture and books merge into an impressive symbiosis.
