Care-free amusement in a Rococo ambience
As of 1757, Duke Carl Eugen had some rooms on the second floor of the New Main Building arranged as his private apartments. The Duke met with his closest confidantes here. The rooms provided the setting for conversation, games and music. The décor points in part to what the rooms were used for: gilded stucco and carvings in the Assembly Room depict musical instruments, an allusion to the fact that the room also served as an intimate concert hall.
