  Main gate to the palace grounds
by Kathrin_E

This is the main entrance to the palace grounds, which you reach if you come from the town centre and train station. The pillars of the gate bear the coats of arms of Elector Johann Wilhelm (1690-1711) and his second wife Anna Maria Luisa de'Medici.

The two small buildings in front of the palace are the watchhouses. The left one contains a cafe, the right one the cash desk and shop. Buy your ticket there before proceeding further: entrance to the park only is € 4, to the palace incl. guided tour and the park € 8 (prices for adults).
