New Palace Bayreuth

After the Old Palace burned down, the new town residence for Margrave Friedrich von Brandenburg-Bayreuth was begun by Joseph Saint-Pierre in 1753. Margravine Wilhelmine had considerable influence on its final form, designing some of the rooms herself, including the Cabinet of Fragmented Mirrors and the Old Music Room with its pastel portraits of singers, actors and dancers.
The Palm Room with its outstanding walnut panelling is a typical example of the Rococo style in Bayreuth. On the ground floor of the New Palace is a comprehensive collection of Bayreuth faience from the manufactory founded in 1716 (Rummel Collection).
