    The city of Rudolstadt, which can be seen from afar, is Schloss Heidecksburg, one of the most magnificent Baroque palaces in Thuringia. It was the residence of the princes of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt.
    Today, the castle houses the Thuringian State Museum Heidecksburg and the Thuringian State Archive Rudolstadt. heidecksburg.de
    Not only the annual Rudolstadt Festival is worth a concert in this setting.

    1735 also burned down this castle largely. Only the guardhouse, the ribbed vault on the ground floor of the west wing, the portal on the north wing and large parts of the south wing (with gate, mirror cabinet and some other rooms) were spared and were integrated into the new structure. 1737 began the construction of the reconstruction of the new baroque residence, which should take into account the representation of the 1710 raised in the princely state house Schwarzburg- Rudolstadt (Wikipedia).
