The Kurfürstliche Schloss is situated directly on the Rhine. The residential palace was erected between 1777 and 1793 in French classical style for Kurfürst Clemens Wenzeslaus von Trier. This was the preferred residence of Prince Wilhelm of Prussia and his wife, Augusta, and later of Emperor Wilhelm I.
The Kurfürstliche Schloss is among the most significant castle buildings built in Germany directly before the French Revolution. Today it houses various federal authorities, stands for representative purposes and has rooms for festive banquets.
