In its almost 60 exhibition rooms, Schloss Fasanerie houses an extensive collection of high quality 18th and 19th century furniture and interior design objects.

The north wing of the palace complex, where many of the rooms still feature the original rococo plasterwork from the time the palace was built, is dedicated to arts and crafts from the baroque period. The extremely sumptuous interiors in this part of the palace are mainly from the time of the House of Hesse landgraves (William VIII, Frederick II and William IX). The splendidly furnished apartments provide a representative insight into the sweeping grandeur and opulence of life at the court of Hesse. The former residents and their aristocratic relatives are ever-present in the form of numerous portraits adorning the rooms and halls.

The south wing is home to pieces from the 19th century. Empire style furniture and precious arts and crafts objects such as clocks and gilt bronze instruments are exhibited here. Most of these objects come from Schloss Wilhelmshöhe, the summer palace of the Electors, and from the Bellevuepalais in Kassel. [source]
