Sala terrena

The sala terrena, the hall on the ground floor, forms the link between the architecture of the palace and the natural scenery of the garden.

Crossing the room takes you to the Baroque garden. Prince Eugene had the hall decked with gilded stucco and especially on hot summer days lingered in this pleasantly cool place.

During the nineteenth century the room became more and more neglected so that in 1898 it was decided to remove the so called entrelac stucco completely. Nevertheless, remnants of the room’s former glory remained, which were integrated into the reconstruction of the hall for the Prince Eugene Exhibition in 1986.
