Prinz Carl Palais

Prinz Carl Palais
Located in Munich, Prinz Carl Palais is a mansion constructed in the style of early Neoclassicism (1804-1806). On the name of its former owners, the mansion was also called the Palais Royal and Palais Salabert. The architect Karl von Fischer planned the Prinz Carl Palais in 1803 for Abbé Pierre de Salabert, who was a former teacher of king Maxmilian I Joseph of Bavaria.
The building was acquired by Maxmilian I in 1807 on the death of Abbé Salabert. After the death of Maxmilian I in 1825, his son, Ludwig 1, gave Prinz Carl Palais to his brother Prince Carl. On his order Anton Schwanthaler and Jean-Baptiste Métevier decorated the rooms. After the death of Carl, 1876 onwards, the Palais served as diplomatic mission for Hungary-Austria, and in 1924 it became the residence for Bavarian Prime Ministers. The interior of the palace has beautifully carved panel doors, rich decorative paintings and stuccoes.
