Ansbach Residence

Picture: Ansbach Residence

Ansbach Palace is virtually unique in Germany as a residence that still looks much as it did in the 18th century. Developed from a Late-Medieval complex, it acquired its present appearance at the hands of Gabriel di Gabrieli and Karl Friedrich von Zocha. Leopold Retti created the Early-Rococo interior.

Festival Hall

Among the highlights are the ceiling painting in the Festival Hall by Carlo Carlone, the gallery with paintings from the margravial gallery (Branch of the Bavarian State Galleries) and the Mirror Cabinet. The Gothic Hall remaining from the renaissance building contains the important »Adolf Bayer Collection of Ansbach Ceramics«.

In the Court Garden opposite, which also features an orangery, is a splendid parterre with summer flowers and numerous tub plants, as well as a medicinal herb garden.
