The Weissenstein Wing, the south wing of Palace Wilhelmshöhe, was built from 1786 to 1790 at the order of Landgrave Wilhelm IX of Hesse-Cassel, later Prince Elector Wilhelm I. The Weissenstein Wing originally accommodated the landgrave’s living quarters and representative rooms.

Today, tours take vistors through 23 of the historic palace rooms including the dining hall, portrait gallery, study and royal bathroom, where a one-of-a-kind collection of furniture and furnishings from the Empire period is presented alongside numerous paintings by Johann Heinrich Tischbein the Elder, Carl Gustaf Pilo, French painters of the 18th century and others. Holdings from the library of the Prince Elector and porcelain collection further complement the presentation.
