Have you visited the new museum of Stuttgart, the Stadtpalais, yet? Then you might have noticed the strange chandelier in the entrance hall. Do you know what it is made of?
The Stadtpalais is located close to the U-Bahn station Charlottenplatz in a beautiful building that’s also known under the name Wilhelmspalais (because king Wilhelm II used to live here). It is home of the new museum of Stuttgart and well worth a visit (entrance to the permanent exhibition is free of charge!) as you will learn heaps about the history of our city. (->If you want to find out more, visit my post A museum for our city: Stadtpalais Stuttgart.)
When you enter Stadtpalais you will stand in a hall. And when you look up you will see a very extraordinary chandelier.
Fun fact: The chandelier is made of five streetlights, the same you will find all over Stuttgart! They are even attached to the energy circle of the real streetlights and will light up with them! What a fun idea and a great symbol of the museums purpose: bringing the life of the streets of Stuttgart into this new museum!
