"Former Royal Palace"

The Fürstenpalais, the former residence of the royal family, used to lie just a few yards away from the Hauptwache, the main police station. Yet only the entrance to the residence can be seen today; the rest of the magnificent palace was destroyed in World War II. The 1741 baroque palace the most extravagant in the region, it originally served as the residence of the royal family, but the family left town in 1748 and the palace was turned into a home for royal guests. Between 1816 and 1848, the German parliament met here. Afterwards, the palace became the headquarters of the German Post Office. Completely destroyed during the War, apart from the front entrance, the Post Office Tower was built on the site of the original palace in 1955. Visitors to the area can still walk by the front entrance to the palace and marvel at its splendor while imagining how beautiful the whole palace must have looked.
