The princely salons

These salons document the life of members of the Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn family from the beginning of the 19th century in Russia, France, Italy and, since 1850, in Sayn. The paintings of Franz Xaver Winterhalter, Horace Vernet and other great painters, as well as the sculptures of Christian Daniel Rauch, create a special atmosphere. Some furniture and paintings belong to Princess Gabriela and come from the castle of Pommersfelden, near Bamberg. The brightly colored rooms correspond to the neo-Gothic style of the 19th century. The large hall with white marble fireplace and the portraits of Prince Ludwig and Princess Leonilla offers a princely setting for ceremonies and civil receptions. In the Russian drawing room, there is a bust of Princess Charlotte of Prussia, a daughter of Queen Louise, who changed name to Alexandra Fyodorovna when she married Tsar Nicholas I, as well as paintings of family possessions in Russia.
