To this day, the image of the city center of Zweibrücken is shaped by the baroque ducal suburb, which Christian IV had built during the great heyday of the duchy in the 18th century to beautify his royal seat.
Today this ducal suburb is in the middle of the city and, with Hallplatz, forms a contrast between different epochs and architectural styles, which can be photographed very well.
