Kempten Residenz

Kempten Residenz
Rooms of State in the Residence

After the Benedictine Monastery founded in 750 was destroyed in the Thirty Years' War, the church and residence were rebuilt under Prince-Abbot Roman Giel von Gielsberg as the first monumental monastery complex in Germany. The project was commenced in 1652. The residential rooms were furnished from 1732-1742 under the direction of the artistically knowledgeable Prince-Abbot Anselm von Reichlin-Meldegg. The baroque building with double courtyards was built by Michael Beer and Johann Serro and includes the Fürstensaal (Hall of the Dukes) with its austere stuccowork and the Prunkräume (Rooms of State) with gorgeous Rococo decoration which is unique in South Germany.

Hours: April-September: 9 am-4 pm, October: 10 am-4 pm, November, January-March: Saturdays 10 am-4 pm. Closed Mondays.

Admission: Adults 3 €, Concessions 2 €.
