    Schloss Weißenstein was built between 1711 and 1718 under Lothar Franz von Schönborn, the Bamberg Prince-Bishop and Elector of Mainz in Pommersfelden near Bamberg as a private summer residence. It is considered the founding building of the Franconian Baroque and is still owned by the Schönborn family.

    🏰 Weißenstein: Baroque experience - 300 years of historyElector Lothar Franz von Schönborn built his private summer residence not far from Bamberg and that is what 🏰 Weißenstein in Pommersfelden has remained for the family of the Counts of Schönborn to this day. You can see the imposing staircase, the richly decorated shell grotto, the huge marble hall and splendidly furnished rooms as well as a collection of paintings that is still one of the largest private ones in Germany.A romantic walk in the English landscape park with free-range fallow deer, beautiful waters in untouched nature can be enjoyed.
