Schloss Wilhelmshöhe, Kassel

Schloss Wilhelmshöhe was built for Landgrave Frederick II of Hessen-Kassel. In 1786, Heinrich Christoph Jussow presented an ideal project, but the commission was given to Simon Louis du Ry (1726-1799). Finally the long series of variegated and innovative designs was reduced to a conventional scheme as a three-wing complex and constructed by Jussow on English lines.

The photo shows one of the side wings.
