  • We were at the Saturday 22.7.2010 in Pommersfelden and have made a tour of the castle with friends (at 11: 00). First of all, the castle is very nice, super renovated and something special. The leadership but was somewhat disturbing, to put it kindly. The good wife was, although very small, very large in the gripe. She not just friendly has treated the guest (German and French). At some point, we was told that that photograph is prohibited. A guest had made up to that time already a picture, she drove him and made an announcement in German. Only when we told her he doesn't understand them she are very unfriendly said "now delete it...". You can say something nice, too. As a small child in a room sat on a Chair there "standing around", she flipped out completely. She yelled at the child, it should immediately stand up, that is an old stool. My God, if you can touch anything, then you should either explain at the beginning of the people or shut off the items. All guests felt uneasy on this guided tour. The Palace tour should contemplate really, whether this fellow is really still released on guests. We will advise all our friends anyway, to make a tour there.

  • Huge baroque castle from 1711 with a large park (running free wild) 15-minute from the Bamberg. By chance it passed and a leadership did with (private chambers of the Prince-Bishop, paintings Gallery, Hall of mirrors, soft cave etc.) Madness, as the nobility has built at that time: in some areas, our House would fit 3 x. Very nice guide, who competently answered all questions and gave a good insight in the Baroque style. Guided tour € 8 / P, that are worth but. The Park offers large wild grass, old trees and a lake. Deer and deer roam freely. Costs €1 on the turnstile but once again. We could participate in a concert rehearsal of an international colloquium of the music in the concert hall.

  • So much details. Very impressive.
  • I love the Castle and grew up with these magnificent walls. The garden with the deer is simply beautiful. However, you should really mention that the count is a huge egotist. After, the restaurants and the hotel are gone until he joined even the chapel where I was baptized, for the Catholic community. For years I have ministriert there and just for the older audience in Pommersfelden, there is no church now Sunday. Thank you to the many love Mr. counts. Many people you have prepared very much excitement for nothing. Best no one should go a while until cooking is broke. Love greetings
