Buildings of prestige
It was not just the Residential Palace that the Prince-Bishops built, they were also responsible for countless other buildings in the city. Baroque rulers were all too keen to emphasize their commitment to construction since buildings were part of their royal prestige. The ceiling frescos often served as a platform for self-expression of this nature – and it was no different in Bruchsal. The fresco in the Dome Hall was created by Johann Zick in 1752.
