King for a day…
Schloss Fantaisie in Eckersdorf, Franconia is a Dream Castle with medieval roots. Close to Bayreuth you can meander through a beautiful Park with century old trees and be greeted by black swans…
is situated ca. 5 km west of Bayreuth, Franconia. The roots of this castle are medieval. In 1763 Fredericka Sophie the only daughter of Frederick, Margrave of Brandenburg-Bayreuth inherited the castle and gave it the name Fantaisie.
Schloss Fantaisie is since 2000 the first German Garden Museum. So much for the facts …
When you enter the main gate you are greeted by breathtaking, colorful blooming rhododendron, lining the castle walls. The whole park is a beautiful arrangement of century old trees, mazes, fountains, little lakes, tea-pavilions, and lush forests with farn and moss – a true fantasy landscape like out of a picture book.
We were even greeted by a family of black swans and a beautiful little fire salamander. Feel like a king …
There is a nice little café inside the building which serves well enough cappuccino, even with lactose free milk, and nice cakes.
