Ansbach Residenz

Picture: Ansbach Residenz

Ansbach Residenz evolved from a medieval complex. Its Gotische Halle (Gothic Hall), a feature of the original building, today houses the important collection »Ansbach faience Adolf Bayer«. The Residenz 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.
