The Friederikenschlösschen got its name after the Duchess Dowager Friederike von Sachsen-Weißenfels (1715-1775). She lived in Langensalza from 1746 until her death and had this castle built between 1749 and 1751 with the two neighboring cavalier houses as a summer residence. Friederike was a daughter of Duke Friedrich II of Saxony-Gotha-Altenburg (Ernestiner) and married to Duke Johann Adolph II of Saxony-Weißenfels (1685-1746). The colored alliance coat of arms in a cartouche above the entrance door into the Friederikenschlösschen shows the connection between these two ducal houses. Today’s Castle park was reconstructed on the basis of historical plans in its basic baroque structure from 1751.
