Seehof Palace. I’m going to be honest, I don’t know a whole lot about this site. In fact, when we went to see it, I didn’t even know it was a palace. We saw it on our way to Bamberg, and followed roads until we found it. It was purely a meeting of chance. However, according to a site hosted by the Bavarian Palace Department, it was built in the 1600s as as summer home for the Bamberg Prince-Bishops. The grounds were gorgeously manicured, with fountains and sculptures abundantly placed.
My favorite part, however was the palace itself. It was unlike the massive, gothic structures that dot Bavaria. It has another influence that I could not quite place confidently. The warm red tone of the bricks was inviting, even though I remember the day we visited was cold and a little rainy. Overall, this was the best picture I got of the structure all together.
