The Chinese House was built between 1755 and 1764 to attribute the 
Seven Year's War.

The Style really is Special. It is a mix from Rococo Style and parts of
Chinese architecture.



Chinese Style was popular in the 18th. century. The trend started in France
and spread itself through England, Germany and Russia.





In the 17th. century Dutch traders brought oriental things to noble Courts in
Europe. 



Inside the Chinese House there is a Round Room and several Cabinet Rooms.




It really is beautiful and worth to visit!
