  • Elector Lord Franz had lots of money so he built a monster palace in 1720 and loaded it with art and sculptures of himself. Titian, Rubens and even a Carvaggio on display with hundreds of others in th...  more »
  • If the castle itself is worth to be visited, the home does certainly not part of the vocabulary of the staff! Tours are held at a fixed time, we went at 11:15 for the visit from 12:00 in stating that we wanted to get the description in french as indicated on the website. The person at the desk wouldn't hear and led us to no charge join the tour from 11:00 group. When we asked the guide to start the visit because we had not had the introduction or the comment of the 1st room, replied that it was not possible because we had paid for 1 visit (sic). After a long discussion and facing our deep dissatisfaction, did us the flower to be able to attend the next visit (taken also on) taking care to drive us to the reception after the vestibule (fear maybe our eyes don't) causes an obsolescence of places...). To believe that the last day of visits was too much for these little affable people... Just so the outdoor tour, you keep a better memory...

  • 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.

  • Lovely baroque museum
  • So much details. Very impressive.
  • A wonderful 17th century Vajsenshtajn Palace (also known as Pommersfelden, named after the village where it is located, see the wiki. ru), not too big in size, but a standout on the harmony of its architecture, owned by the hand of Johann Dintcenhofera. The building is a brilliant example of Franconian Baroque. Because the Palace is privately owned, it is not included in the shortlist, recommended to visit the Bavarian Directorate for tourists, while in the books on the palaces of Europe mentioned among the ten most significant historic castles in Germany. In winter, a short tour of the Palace, shows the lobby, main room and a very beautiful and unusual lower Hall of the castle the Grotte, stylized architect under the marine realm. We got to the Guide-connoisseur, which held an interesting, albeit short (half an hour) excursion. Stands for 4-5 € per person, English or German.

  • A splendid Castle - and has recently been fully renovated and can be seen in part of a guided tour (approx. 1 h). Still a beautiful large old Castle Park. An absolutely interesting Chateau, very well suited for a trip.

  • Very nice Castle, very dog-friendly there. We didn't go to the Museum, although the very nice and friendly staff has said she would take care of my dog, I didn't do it. But I would everyone still it advisable from the inside to look at time. The courtyard is very savaged and if it is good there is the free-range deer. Visit it, it is worthwhile in any case.
