Bamberg Travel Tip:
Seehof Palace and Park
Seehof Palace and Park
Seehof Palace was built from 1686 as a summer residence for the Bamberg Prince-Bishops from plans by Antonio Petrini. After secularization it fell into disrepair under private ownership, and by the end of the 20th century extensive renovation work was necessary. Most of the palace is today used by the Bavarian State Conservation Office, however the nine state rooms of the restored Prince-Bishops' apartment, including the
White Hall with its magnificent ceiling painting by Guiseppe Appiani, are open to the public.
Among the features reflecting the splendor of the former Rococo garden are the restored cascade with its waterworks and some of the original sandstone sculptures by Ferdinand Tietz.
Hours: April-October: 9 am-6 pm, closed Mondays. Closed November-March. Waterworks display from May- 7 October daily, 10 am-5 pm every hour on the hour.
Admission: Adults 3.50 €, Concessions 2.50 €.
Address: 96117 Memmelsdorf
