Fascinating sandstone features
The two column shafts and the original door frames show how splendidly the Imperial Hall was once decorated. Imaginative sandstone ornaments were carved in the Renaissance style. Edges of a cross vault can still be seen on the ceiling. The original sculptures from the facade of the Ottheinrich’s Wing on display here are also quite impressive. The Flemish sculptor, Alexander Colin (1526–1612), carved them in the mid-16th century.
