On the south side are the apartments of the Margrave, and on the north those of his wife, with their richly decorated ceilings. Also be sure to see the Porcelain Collection. A Baroque church (1720-1723) is attached to the Margravine's apartments. Its interior is magnificently decorated, with ceiling murals representing the legend of the Holy Cross.
