  • Amalienburg – built for Electress Amalie as a hunting lodge in the rococo style. Best known for its circular “hall of mirrors”.
  • Badenburg – basically the bath house or swimming pool. Some of the interiors are Chinese.
  • Pagodenburg – the smallest “home”, mainly a resting place for the royals after a game of something similar to croquet. The style is rococo á la chinoise.
  • Magdalenenklause – a place for religious meditation, built in the style of Italian monastic ruins. Grotto-styled chapel styled with reefs and shells (must have been extraordinarily colourful and white at one time).
