A pearl among German castles.

History of the house

In the middle of the Franconian town of Forchheim, nestled between numerous charming half-timberred buildings, stands the castle of Forchheim, also call the “Kaiserpfalz“ by the townspeople. Although medieval documents prove that there must have been a palace complex in Forchheim, this has never been found by archaeologists. The castle complex that exists today is in fact a prince-bishop residence built by Bamberg Bishop Lambert von Brunn in the late 14th century.

This makes The “Kaiserpfalz“ full of stories, memories and secrets that visitors from all over the world want to discover anew every day.
