"An elegant vestibule leads to the main hall on the upper floor, from which a picture of the back wall and a partial view of the stage wall were taken. (...) The planning of the program, that also the festive rooms and the stairs house had to be suitable for exhibition purposes, allowed a modest, reserved decorative decoration of these rooms, in particular with respect to the picturesque jewelery. Thus, by Max Max Koch, only two larger representations of the hall were executed: a representation in the arch opening of the stage, which we reproduce at the head of our number, and a larger wall painting on the back of the hall, which is indicated in our hall view.

In the halbrund above the stage opening, the late-Greek-knighting knight of the myth of St. George was portrayed in Nordic-Germanic transformation, and with romanticizing styles as a victorious destroyer of the discord between the success of the work. The second work of the artist is the large, narrow-leafed painting of the back wall with a freely treated motif from Nordic mythology. The Northern Apollo Baldur descends to the earth in a light cloud illuminated by the radiant sunrise, bringing to earth the arts and poetry, light and fire. The imagination of the rich fairy-tale world is the result of the light-flooded aether and the imaginative forest landscape. "

"The one narrow wall occupies a real, practicable stage with lacing, a stylized knight George above the curtain; On the other narrow wall is a wide gallery far in the hall. Above it is a large picture of Max Koch: "Baldur appears on the earth." A beautiful youth, surrounded by the rays of the rising sun, rises above the mists, and the sleepy men look at him with astonishment. "
