The Grand Ducal Hessian Porcelain Collection was set up by Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig of Hesse and by Rhine and was opened to the public in 1908.The collection is not the result of an individual collector’s passion but rather the product of a family’s inventory, gathered over centuries. Bordering the Herrngarten, the Prince Georgs Palace, a nice little garden palace, forms, together with its charming garden, a unique baroque ensemble.
