The Chateau Riding Hall is an architectural monument located next to Lednice Chateau. It is the oldest preserved part of the Lednice Chateau from the end of the 17th century, in 1688-1696. In the courtyard, there is a trio of passages with porticoes and portals animated by allegorical sculptures.
The renovation of this remarkable monument (the Riding Hall is part of the chateau and the Lednice-Valtice Complex which has been registered in UNESCO since 1996) was under the most stringent regime of “exemplary renovation”. In fact, everything that could be restored in the building, was restored, everything which could not be saved, was created exactly according to the original template. During the renovation, inter alia one of the largest baroque riding hall floors was discovered and restored; the façade is decorated with restored baroque illusive paintings.
There is a museum inside the building which includes inter alia a permanent exhibition on the exemplary renovation of the Chateau Riding Halls in Lednice. Visitors can take a look at the technical drawings of the most interesting building blocks and watch a document that captures the most important parts of the demanding renovation. You can compare the condition of the buildings before the renovation when it served as warehouses, garages and it was generally in a rather poor state.
