Fantaisie Palace was begun in 1761 and completed after 1763 by Duchess Elisabeth Friederike Sophie von Württemberg, daughter of the Bayreuth Margrave Friedrich and his wife Wilhelmine. The attractive palace park combines elements from three main style epochs: Rococo, Sensibility and Historicism.

The palace is the location of the first garden museum in Germany, with exhibits, displays and videos vividly recreating the history of garden design.

Among the highlights is the copy of the famous inlaid cabinet by the Spindler brothers.

Unfortunately not open at 10am. Internet site has incorrect opening times. According to the park staff, they will open as they please.

Absolutely rude handling of wedding planning. The location pavilion is a dream, but the requirements and rules are a nightmare. I can only advise you against this.

Nice weather and a beautiful terrace in the middle of beautiful nature. Simply ideal with a delicious ice cream parlor and delicious cakes. The prices are reasonable and there is parking everywhere around the park. Really very recommendable. If you have time, you can also enjoy nature on a walk in the park.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
