Banqueting Hall

The appearance of the banqueting hall goes back to its remodelling in the 1770s. Compared with the Baroque chapel, this room is imbued with the austere aesthetics of Neo-classicism. The stucco decorations were executed by Karl Martin Keller.

Originally there were several large gaming tables in this room.  Besides the sconces (replicas after the originals), three large glass chandeliers illuminated the hall with a total of 140 candles. Today the hall provides a splendid background for concerts.

The white stucco relief on the ceiling dates from the time of Prince Eugene. It shows the mythological depiction of the hunt with the goddess Diana as central figure, alluding to the palace’s use as hunting lodge.
