  • 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...  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...  more »

  • 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
