The winter dining room
Whether a room was open to the public or reserved for the prince-bishop can also be determined based on the painting above the door. Overdoors with mythological and biblical scenes hang in the representational apartments. In the private rooms, still lifes, genre, or landscape pictures can be found. In the winter dining room, two still lifes of fruit by the court painter Lothar Schweickart have been preserved. The ripe fruit can be understood as a symbol of transience, while the animals are a depiction of virtues and sins.
