Construction of the original Leine Palace began in 1637. From 1714, King George I had its interior reconstructed, with magnificent decorations. After a fire, the north-west wing had to be rebuilt. Further constructional changes were made by Georg Laves between 1815 and 1835. Among other details, he added the classicistic portico, resembling the example at Carlton House palace in London. Today, the Leineschloss houses the Landtag – the state parliament of Lower Saxony, which is currently being renovated.
