    The residential palace is the symbol of the city of Bad Arolsen.
    Built in the Baroque style between 1710 and 1810, it owes its creation to Prince Friedrich Anton Ulrich zu Waldeck and Pyrmont (1676 to 1728).
    From 1710 onwards, the Augustinian monastery or monastery palace, first mentioned in 1131, was demolished and from 1713 the new three-winged baroque building was built according to plans by the master builder Julius Ludwig Rothweil. His most important employee was the plasterer Andrea Gallasini.
    On September 13, 1720, the royal couple made a solemn entry into the castle, in which, however, only the east wing was habitable until then. The ceiling paintings by the Italian Carlo Ludovici Castelli were made between 1721 and 1722. In 1721, the Kassel painter Magnus de Quitter made the over-portals in the "Palatinate" and "Crown Prince" rooms.
    In 1728 the palace chapel in the eastern outer pavilion was inaugurated. After Prince Friedrich Anton Ulrich's death, his son Prince Carl (1728 to 1763) took over the business of government. The rococo in Arolsen reaches its climax with the design of the princess's audience room (Red Salon).
    The construction work dragged on for around 100 years due to lack of money. The palace was only completed around 1810 under Prince Friedrich.

    For example, for weddings but also for other purposes, it can be rented to give the celebration the right setting.
    A visit should not be missed.

    The sightseeing of the residence castle is worth seeing, but the surroundings of the city are worth a hike. If you come here, you should not miss a hike around the wonderful city.
