Without any planning beforehand, we stumbled across this huge palace and into their special tour for kids, which they run a few times a year during school holidays. It was nicely done and entertaining without being boring for our five year old. He got to...More

This is a stunningly beautiful country palace (German "Schloss") close to the village of Pommersfelden. It was built in the early 18th century and served as a summer residence for the dukes of Bamberg. You can not visit during winter - only from April through...More

A grand palace with a monumental staircase, she'll grotto room & beautiful marble hall. Entry is by guided tour only (in German, and rather sparse sheets in English given to help). Surrounding park couldn't be accessed with pushchair as it was through a turnstile. Small...More

I can only write down that the tour (€ 7.00 a head) is very interesting, with a well-informed guide (tour is in German), because picture taking inside was prohibited. Outside the mansion is very impressive. Parking is free, with a number of places next to...More

From the outside the schloss is very impressive and has obviously had some recent restoration. The interior though was disappointing. There is also no garden just parkland. You have to take a guided tour which is in German but you are given a sheet to...More

Schloss Weissenstein amazes from the very first contact with its magnitude - it's bigger than many royal palaces, even though it had belonged and still belongs to a noble, yet not royal, family. You can also see this magnitude inside, as the biggest room is...More

As a previous poster stated, it's a hidden gem. Strangely my GPS routed me very near Pommersfelden so we stopped by on our way home from Bamberg. It's a nice palace in the middle of nowhere. Stop by if you're in the area.

This beautiful baroque palace is a little off the beaten path, but that's what makes it so interesting. It's around 40 minutes southeast of the gem of a town Bamberg. It survived the ravages of WWII due to its location. It is only open April...More
