Overview

An excellent example of 'Maximilianstil', the architectural style characteristic of the reign of Maximilian II Joseph (1848-1864), this monumental building is 170m wide and its structure is complex. The central part has 17 axes centered on three dominant axes, and six corner turrets separate it from the buildings with five axes attached to the main triple axis structures. The windows feature pointed arches and pronounced vertical alignment: similar to the Gothic style but actually derived from the iron architecture of the time (known as the Strecklisenensystem). The building was largely destroyed during the War and only the façade has been reconstructed. In front of the building are two statues: Johann Halbig's bronze statue of Count Deroy and Kaspar Zumbusch's statue of Rumford, creator of the English Gardens.
