From 1575 the ducal heir Wilhelm had the residential apartments painted with a comprehensive picture programme in the style of the Italian Renaissance. The paintings and furnishings were almost completely destroyed in a devastating fire that was concentrated here in the Princes’ Building in October 1961. The restoration of the rooms, in a neutral form, was completed in 1970.
The massive, green-glazed Renaissance tiled stove is from the former Renaissance dining hall and is an example of the long-standing tradition of stove setting in Landshut. The paintings depict the court jesters and people from the court of ducal heir Wilhelm.
