Music and Authority

For a thousand years already this location has been the wellspring of authority. On top of that, starting from the middle of the 18th century, the palace became home to a steady theatre, staging opera, comedy and drama.

Taking a 360° view round, the Reithalle at the entrance of the Park an der Ilm, the Platz der Demokratie, the Neue Wache and the old gatehouse with its Bastille appeal to us.
