This important Renaissance palace, built in 1605-1614 by Georg Ridinger, served until 1803 as a second official residence for the archbishops and electors of Mainz. It features an art gallery with works by Lucas Cranach the Elder (Branch of the Bavarian State Galleries), the Vestment Chamber of the Palace Church with ecclesiastical vestments from the Mainz Cathedral treasury, the Princes' Apartments with neoclassical furnishings and the Municipal Palace Museum. One particularly unusual attraction is the world's largest collection of cork architectural models, detailed reproductions of famous buildings from ancient Rome.
