An architectural monument of the 18th century is the Palace of Electors. Originally it was built as a residence for archbishops. In the middle of the 19th century, the palace was the official residence of the Prussian royal house. For eight years, Prince Wilhelm lived there. This beautiful palace was almost completely destroyed during the Second World War. After the end of hostilities, it was restored in the shortest possible time. Presently, the palace looks as beautiful as it was at the dawn of its existence. In the historical building today there are various state institutions.
