Schloss Weissenstein

Schloss Weissenstein

Schloss Weissenstein in Pommersfelden is a fine example of Franconian Baroque architecture. Its portrait galleries, authentically decorated and fully furnished interior and impressive architecture attract up to 50,000 visitors each year to Pommersfelden. Since 1958, the castle has also hosted the Collegium Musicum, at which young musicians from around the world meet for a summer academy and present concerts in the famous marble hall. In order to preserve the castle for future generations, it was integrated into a non-profit foundation in 1996 by Dr. Karl Graf von Schönborn. Since then one member of the family is the responsible administrator of the foundation. Presently it is Paul Count von Schönborn. To this very day, the house is still used by his family as their summer residence.

Schloss Weissenstein in Pommersfelden is surrounded by extensive grounds, which were converted from formal Baroque gardens to an English park landscape in the 19th century. These grounds are open to visitors for relaxation and viewing throughout the year.
