Bentheim Castle

The Hall of Knights 

The room that had formerly been the Hall of Knights during the Romanesque period, where the lords of the castle met with their vassals in the 13th and 14th centuries, was converted into a Banquet Hall in Historicist style by Prince Alexis II in 1913. 

The Romanesque building substance was preserved as much as possible, being additionally supplemented in the Neo-Romanesque style.

The arched windows and the massive center pillar supporting the coffered ceiling attest to this, for example. The fireplace has been left in its original medieval condition as well.
