Bread for the court
The economy wing is predominantly the work of Prince-Elector Ludwig V, who commissioned its construction in the 1520s. Prince-Elector Karl Ludwig I had it repaired and expanded following the Thirty Years' War. The basement housed the court bakery with giant ovens, where all the bread for the entire royal household was baked. The old oven and a massive chimney have survived. The flour used by the court bakery was stored on the third and fourth floors.
