Grey Salon in Belvedere Castle near Weimar.
[GERMANY.THUERINGEN 30494] Belvedere Castle, 3 km. south of Weimar, was constructed in 1722 in the Baroque style as a summer residence for Duke Ernst August I of Sachen-Weimar-Eisenach. In 1922 the castle was converted in a museum which gives visitors the chance to experience what life was like for the Duke and his successors.
Here we see the 'Silbergrauer Salon' (Grey Salon), a dining room of which the walls were emblazoned with the monograms of Weimar's ducal couples around 1900. The ceiling mural dates from the construction period of the castle. Photo Mick Palarczyk.
