Pagodenburg

Chinese-style rococo: The most personal and intimate creation of Elector Maximilian Emanuel.

French on the outside, Oriental on the inside: the first of the garden pavilions to be built (Effner, 1716-19) is like a precious jewel, with its two hexagonal drawing rooms and the Chinese cabinet - the monarch's "Chinese luxury" soon became the rage. The octagonal ground floor is covered with 2,000 Dutch Delft tiles. The rooms above are ornamented in black and red lacquer and painted silk and paper tapestries.
