From 1216 to 1789 the seat of the commanders of the Teutonic Order in Franconia, Ellingen fell to Bavaria in 1806 and was presented by King Max I to his field marshal Prince von Wrede. At the beginning of the 18th century a new palace was built in the baroque style by Franz Keller, which was remodelled in the early neoclassical style from 1774 on from plans by the architect Michel d'Ixnard.
Today the main attractions are the rooms of the Teutonic Order, inlaid cabinets, the Palace Church and the Prince's Rooms with silk and paper wall coverings from the early 19th century.
Around Easter-time there is a carpet of alpine squills (Latin: Scilla) under the massive old trees in the palace park.
The following rooms are available for your events:
