Festival hall of the Residence - new splendour in old walls

Since December 2001, the Reitstadel has been supplemented with the smaller, yet no less representative festival hall of the Residence just opposite.

The building used to serve as ballroom of the Palace of the Counts Palatine and later on as stables of the Bavarian garrison.
It was renovated in 1980 together with the Residenzplatz and set up as a branch of the Bavarian national museum.
Since 1998, the former "Krümperstallung" has been used for events and exhibitions. The attractiveness of the rooms has now induced the Town of Neumarkt to have them thoroughly renovated once again. Acoustics, ventilation and lighting were improved and modern technical equipment for conferences and performances installed.

The wonderful interior design is intended to recall the original function of the building. In the 16th century, Count Palatine Frederick II used the rooms for lavish hunting parties and other festivities. Today's festival halls of the Residence can be used for exhibitions, receptions, conferences and other functions for about 200 people.
