Offer 3 – Guided Tour around the English Style Landscape Park ParkExtending over an area of around 30 hectares, the palace park is a perfect miniature landscape created by a mix of wilderness and carefully maintained areas. Its many picturesque spots can be reached via labyrinthine paths as well as straight, imposing tree-lined avenues. On the guided tour, visitors find out more about the park's history. Before they were redesigned in the English landscape style, which is explained in more detail on the tour, the grounds were laid out in the typical, very formal Baroque style  (duration approx. 90 minutes).

Price per guide: Set fee of 150 euros * maximum group size 30 people

Offer 4: Masterful Portraits by 19th Century Court Painters

"...extremely flattering and beautifully painted...", was how Victoria, Princess Royal and Empress of Germany, described the portrait which Angeli painted of her. It met the commissioner's expectations but is also a perfect example of the famous artistry of the "court painters": the three portrait artists Franz Xaver Winterhalter (1805 –1873), Franz von Lenbach (1836 –1904) and Heinrich von Angeli (1840 –1925). This special exhibition, which runs from 28 June to 2 November 2014, focuses on the particular style they painted their portraits in but also examines the relationship between the painters and their aristocratic models (duration of tour approx. 60 minutes).

Cost: Set fee of 100 euros per guide, * maximum group size 20 people

Offer 5: Prussia in Hessen - on the Trail of Frederick the Great

Numerous works of art at the summer residence of the Landgraves of Hesse are a reminder of the fact that two Prussian princesses married into the House of Hesse. The tour focuses on important works and family portraits by Prussian artists. The museum also houses one of the largest collections of porcelain made by KPM, the royal porcelain manufactory in Berlin, which Frederick the Great established in 1763 (duration of tour approximately 60 minutes).

Price per guide: Set fee of 100 euros * maximum group size 20 people

Offer 6: On the Trail of the House of Orange-Nassau

William I of the Netherlands lived in Fulda between 1802 and 1806, when he was Prince of Nassau-Orange-Fulda. He received many of the renowned personages of his time at the summer residence Schloss Fasanerie – for example the King and Queen of Prussia.
Several hints of this connection between the Houses of Hesse and Orange can be found in the palace museum, for instance a gallery of 10 life-size portraits of the commanders of Maastricht garrison from the town's government building (duration approximately 60 minutes).

Price per guide: Set fee of 100 euros * maximum group size 20 people
