New Residence, Bamberg

The prince-bishop room of the New Residence

The New Residence with its splendid rooms and lavish furnishings is an impressive reflection of the prince-bishops' life. The state gallery contains a significant collection of old German and baroque paintings.

Until 1802 the New Residence served as the seat of Bamberg's prince bishops. The more than 40 magnificent rooms are adorned, among others, with stucco ceilings, furniture and rugs from the 17th and 18th centuries. The imperial hall, painted by Melchior Steidl, the elector's rooms and the prince-bishops' appartments are particularly worth seeing.

The "Old German Gallery" and the "Baroque Gallery" contain significant works of art from the Bavarian State art collections. The Rose Garden in the inner court of the New Residence commands a breath-taking view of Bamberg.
