Modelled after an Italian Renaissance villa, the 300m-long Orangery Palace (1864) was the favourite building project of Friedrich Wilhelm IV – a passionate Italophile. Its highlight is the Raffaelsaal (Raphael Hall), which brims with 19th-century copies of the famous painter's masterpieces. The greenhouses are still used for storing potted plants in winter.

Note that the observation tower will be closed for renovation until at least April 2018.
