Waiting room

Part of the Prince-Archbishop’s state apartments in the huge abbey / church complex next to the cathedral (called “Domquartier”). This is one of the many waiting rooms for people seeking an audience. People were apparently sorted according to their social ranks: more important people could wait in a room closer to his actual office; the closer to the office, the smaller but better decorated the room was.
