Seehof Marquardsburg, Bamberg

The prince-bishop’s summer residence, called the Marquardsburg or Seehof Palace, began as a hunting lodge. The present palace was begun in 1687 under Marquard Sebastian Schenk von Stauffenberg. It was designed by an Italian, Antonio Petrini. The water cascade was built in the eighteenth century (and restored in 1995). The park has old hornbeam hedges, a 250-year-old grove of linden trees.
