Guard Rooms

Guards Room

Emperor Franz Joseph’s guards were posted in this room in order to protect the entrance to his private apartments. On the right is a ceramic stove, which, like all the others in the palace, was fired (originally with wood) via a narrow passage running behind the rooms in order not to disturb the imperial family and to keep the rooms clean. In the nineteenth century a hot-air heating system was installed; this was used until 1992, when it was decommissioned.
