Ansbach Travel Tip:
Hall at the Residenz, Ansbach
The Residence evolved from a medieval complex. Its Gotische Halle (Gothic Hall), a feature of the original building, today houses an important collection of Ansbach faience and porcelain. The Residence was rebuilt in its present form by Gabriel di Gabrieli and Karl Friedrich von Zocha in the 18th century. The early Rococo interior was created by Leopold Retti. Further highlights are the fresco on the Banqueting Hall ceiling by Carlo Carlone, the Art Gallery with Rococo paintings and works from the former Margrave's Gallery (Branch of the Bavarian State Galleries) and the collection of Meißen porcelain in the Mirror Cabinet. Opposite the Residence in the Court Garden with its orangerie there is also a rose and medicinal herb garden.
