  • A Baroque Castle in the country!

    The castle was built from 1711 to 1718 in the Baroque style as a summer residence for Lothar Franz von Schönborn (1655-1729).The tour starts at the main door where I am standing.

  • The Garden

    At the end of the visit I suggest to relax yourself in the nice park of the castle. The entrance fees is € 0.50 and it is not included in the cost of the castle fees (€ 6.00)

  • The rooms

    The other rooms of the castle are very beautiful. Fantastic is the Garden Room with classical statues and the walls completely covered with stones and shells. Stupendous is the Marmorsaal with the fresco made by Michael Rottmayr in 1717. Very interesting are the galleries of pictures, that contain some masterpieces of European painters like Durer,...

    These restaurants are both actually located in Steppach, but Steppach is only 2 km from Pommersfelden.

    Pizza bei Luigi is right on the railroad tracks and has a railroad car as part of the restaurant. The food was ok, but the pizza was a little salty and there wasn't as much variety on the menu as...

    Pizza bei Gino is around the corner from the other pizza place, but is much better overall. The food is better, and the atmosphere is much more elegant-elegant, but still casual. It has a beautiful patio, which is great on cool summer evenings, and the waitstaff is very friendly and understanding of people who don't speak German very well.

    Favorite Dish: Pizza Bomba...onions, salami, olives, artichoke hearts and pepperoncini what more could you want on a pizza?

    Grosser See Pommersfelden

    "Big Lake in Pommersfelden" really isn't such a big lake, but it was a welcome respite from the heat. We made quite a few trips to the lake during the last week of my stay in Pommersfelden and had a great time there. It is pretty shallow, but still big enough for small boats. There is also camping at the lake.

    It's located a couple km north of Pommersfelden.

    Ruined Building in Pommersfelden

    Favorite thing: Pommersfelden is a very cute little town and is worth taking a walk in and around. There are a lot of cute little houses with nice gardens.

    It is surrounded by farms, and the small roads in between the fields are also great for scenic walks. July is especially nice with all the sunflower fields in bloom.
