Fantaisie Palace

Eckersdorf, Germany

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.

Diocletian's Palace

Considered to be one of the most imposing Roman ruins, Diocletian’s palace is certainly the main attraction of the city of Split. The ruins of palace, built between the late 3rd and the early 4th centuries A.D., can be found throughout the city. Today the remains of the palace are part of the historic core of Split, which in 1979 was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

While it is referred to as a 'palace' because of its intended use as the retirement residence of Diocletian, the term can be misleading as the structure is massive and more resembles a large fortress: about half of it was for Diocletian's personal use, and the rest housed the military garrison.

Architecture

The palace has a form of an irregular rectangle with numerous towers on the western, northern, and eastern facades.
