A prime example of classicist architecture that has roots in the Renaissance era.
Barely anything remains from the initial 16th century structure of the Untere Schloss (lower castle) in Greiz. A devastating fire in 1802 severely damaged the fantastic building. Rebuilding the castle took seven years and was done in a strict classicistic style. With its precious moulding, the “Weiße Saal” in particular became a showpiece of the epoch.
Today, the restored rooms are part of the museum, and Greiz’s tourist information centre is also located in the Untere Schloss.
