Fantaisie Palace was begun in 1761 and completed after 1763 by Duchess Elisabeth Friederike Sophie von Württemberg, daughter of the Bayreuth Margrave Friedrich and his wife Wilhelmine.
The attractive palace park combines elements from three main style epochs: Rococo, Sensibility and Historicism.
The palace is the location of the first garden museum in Germany, with exhibits, displays and videos vividly recreating the history of garden design.
Among the highlights is the copy of the famous inlaid cabinet by the Spindler brothers.
