Philippsruhe Palace - the Best Panoramas and a Historical Museum

One of the most beautiful places in Hanau is the Baroque palace of the XVIII century Philippsruhe Palace off the coast of the Main river. The castle, the construction of which began in 1700, served as the summer residence for Count Philipp Reinhard of Hanau. Over time an extensive park was created around the palace with an orangery and a tea house and the building was significantly expanded. Today Philippsruhe houses the history museum. It contains all sorts of documents, photographs, paintings, household items and other exhibits on the history of the city of Hanau.

Part of the collection on the first floor is connected with the palace itself and its carefully preserved interiors. Here, for example, you can see the XIX century Venetian chandeliers in Murano glass, glased tile stoves, and porcelain sets of the XVII century, made at a local factory. Visitors are shown around the Count's library, music room and an art gallery.

The museum houses a small exhibition dedicated to the Grimm Brothers. There is also a rare collection of paper puppet theater. There is an English landscape park with linden alleys, a large fountain, a sculpture garden and an ancient amphitheater around the palace. Performances are given in it today, too. There is a restaurant on one of the terraces of the palace where you can try local dishes and admire the views of the Main river and the surrounding area.
