Eastern Terrace Cabinet

Also known from 1775 as the Flower Cabinet on account of the garlands of flowers painted on its walls, the Eastern Terrace Cabinet lies on the Parade Court side of the palace and enabled the imperial family to gain access to a terrace above the arcades that enclose the Parade Court.

The room has a remarkable ceiling fresco. Painted around 1770 in typically delicate Rococo hues, the trompe l’oeil architecture opens up into skies populated with playful putti.
The painting on the wall panelling was executed, probably at the same time, by Johann Zagelmann.

The restoration works of the Eastern Terrace Cabinet will start from 10 October 2016 and will be done till the end of March 2017. We ask for your understanding for the required work.
