Hall of the Ingelheim Rooms (Room 31)
While the Ingelheim Rooms were named after Prince-Bishop Anselm Franz von Ingelheim, who lived here from 1746 to 1749, the present decoration and furnishing originates from 1776-1778, when Adam Friedrich von Seinsheim was prince-bishop.
As the original work of the court stucco-worker Materno Bossi – together with the court sculptor Peter Wagner (furniture) – they form the stylistic high-point of the Seinsheim era. The Ingelheim Rooms, reconstructed after war damage, are one of the most important works of early neoclassicism in Germany.
