Bayreuth Travel Tip:

Garden Museum Fantaisie Palace and Park
Fantaisie Palace

The park surrounding Schloss Fantaisie was created in the 1760s by Duchess Elisabeth Friederike Sophie von Württemberg, the daughter of Margravine Wilhelmine who had become famous for creating several gardens in the Bayreuth area, including the Eremitage Hofgarten and Sanspareil. The park was further developed by a succession of owners and therefore combines design elements from various style periods: the rococo, the sentimental landscape and the mixed style period of the 19th century. The castle houses Germany's first Garden Art Museum which is exclusively devoted to the history of German garden design of the 18th and 19th centuries, with a regional focus on southern Germany. Among the highlights is the copy of the famous inlaid cabinet by the Spindler brothers.

Hours: April - September: 9 am - 6 pm, closed on Mondays. Oct. 1st - Oct. 15th: 10am - 4pm. Closed from Oct. 16th to March.
