The “Regentenbau”, with its high walls and pillars was originally built for live performances. The walls are 36 m in length and 16 m in height and are decorated with cherry wood and ebony panels which are noted to enhance the manner in which sound is transmitted within an enclosed space. The art nouveau style “Grüne Saal” (green hall) is used for various musical purposes.
The “Weiße Saal” is designed in rococo style and delights with its elaborate ornamentation. From here you can gain entrance to the enchanting “Schmuckhof” (jewelled courtyard) which charms and holds many surprises.
There are a further collection of smaller halls, like for example the “Lesesaal” (reading hall), the “Salon Fontane” (named after Theodor Fontane) and the “Rossini-Saal” (named after the Italian composer Gioacchino Antonio Rossini). The building has recently been renovated and modernised and is now outfitted with the latest technical equipment.
Art displays and craft presentations are often displayed for the public in the entrance area of the “Rossini-Saal”.
