The palace was first built in the 15th century and its original design was finalised in the mid-18th century but was heavily damaged by allied bombings during World War II and then demolished again in communist East Germany in 1950. After the reunification of Germany, the palace was constructed again but only to be demolished in 2008 for the reconstruction of the old palace.
