The “Jägerhof”, planned by Hermann Willebrand, was constructed within sight of the Castle and was located to the north of the hunting ground and its hunting lodges which Friedrich Franz II used intensively and which extended towards Ludwigslust. This hunting seat comprised five buildings: the hunting equipment store in the back courtyard where the hunting gear was once kept and which is screened today by a building situated in front of it; two houses where the Court gamekeepers lived; and two kennels with integrated accommodation for the kennel staff.

Today the right-hand building houses the City Archive, which stores important documents about the city’s history, court life and buildings.
