A True Palace
The 1500's meant even more wealth for the Dukes of Scôz. The Burg was constantly rebuilt, extended and altered.
Grand Duke Oszkar II commissioned a new Central buidling, connected to the Old Central Tower.
His son started the extension of the old North Wing, a project that was finished under
the rule of Eberhardt I in 1531. This part also included the magnificent Herzozky Reiszer Hall
("Royal State Hall"), and a Chapel.
Ten years later, the Moats were demolished. Eberhardt was planning to
extend the Castle to the West, but the plans were abandoned when he was killed in 1546 .
In the 1550's Grand Duke Sevenir rebuilt the Eastern and Western wings, and the old Burg
was reborn as a true Renaissance Palace. His famous Winter Gardens were designed by Nelz van Messer, and
were much admired by the entire country.
