After all the speeches and guided tour led by Mrs. Dr. Pechacek and Mrs. Arch. Reisch through all the rooms gave the visitors the chance to hear first hand details of the wide variety of works done. We are very proud to be the supplier for all the historical light fittings of the 17 renovated rooms of the Beletage. As all original lamps have been destroyed during a bombing attack on 1st March 1945, all details had to be developed with historical knowledge, expertise and images. Our specialists together with glass manufacturers in Czech Republic and Austria could rebuild all the iconic glas and crystal parts of these chandeliers. All of these works have been conducted in very close consultation with Mrs. Dr. Pechacek and Mrs. Arch Reisch together with our team in Brunn am Gebirge under the competent leadership of Irene and Manfred Dotzauer. The renovated Palace can be visited by the public. The opening hours and dates of guided tours can be found on the homepage of Palace Bruchsal. We wish the team of Palace Bruchsal good luck and much fun in the newly renovated home!
