1 Administrative Office

The tour begins at the palace building, which
served as the office of the Bamberg bailiffs. It
was built as a fortification with a main tower
(keep) and moat. The baroque style building was
built by Prince-Bishop Lothar Franz von Schön-
born in 1720 and two modern wings were added
in 1967. Today these rooms house the town
administration, the public library and tourist
information.

Cobbler‘s Fountain
The fountain, erected in the castle courtyard 2008, grants an amused nod to the traditional competition between the two sporting goods companies adidas and PUMA. The children‘s rope-pull symbolizes the
long-standing rivalry between the Dassler brothers. The artist of the fountain is Theophil Steinbrenner from Schwarzach.
