Das Karussellzimmer

Carousel Room

The Carousel Room served as the antechamber to the apartments of Maria Theresa and Franz Stephan of Lorraine in the East Wing of the palace.

The name of this room derives from one of the paintings set into the wall which shows the Ladies’ Carousel or carriage parade that Maria Theresa
held in the Court Riding School in 1743 to celebrate the retreat of the French and Bavarian forces from Bohemia, an event which marked the end of the first Silesian War.
The painting depicting the investiture of the Order of St Stephen, an order awarded for civilian merit, commemorates another important event in the reign of Maria Theresa.
