Museum Corps de Logis

When in 1755 Elector Carl Theodor commissioned his 'First architect and managing director of buildings and gardens', Nicolas de Pigage, to build a new summer residence, this also included the transformation of the gardens behind the old water castle.

Following the favourite idea of absolutist rulers, the plan was to build a total work of art of palace and gardens - the buildings, the gardens and the water forming one unit.
