Hanover Herrenhausen Palace

Hanover Herrenhausen Palace


Modern conference centre behind baroque walls

Where once in 1683 the future British King George II saw the light of day, there is now a modern conference centre and museum behind classicist walls. The original Herrenhausen Palace was a baroque building from the 17th century and was gradually remodelled over the years in the spirit of classicism. At this time, for example, the typical three-winged complex was added, which opens onto the Great Garden to the south. Due to the air raid on Hanover on 18 October 1943, the Schloss Herrenhaus was completely burnt out. It was only in 2012 that it could be reconstructed in the form of a classicist palace with the support of the Volkswagen Foundation.
