Rose Garden

Rose Garden

The Rose Garden in the inner court of the New Residence is not only filled with a sea of fragrant flowers but it also reveals a beautiful view of Michaelsberg and the Old Town.

Prince-bishop Friedrich Karl von Schönborn had the garden designed by Balthasar Neumann. The symmetrically arranged sections are in keeping with the baroque idea of a modern garden. Every summer, framed by lime trees and an elegant garden pavilion, around 4500 roses burst into bloom. The sculptures were created by the Bamberg court sculptor Ferdinand Tietz in 1760/61; they join the roses to create an impressive orchestration of baroque splendour. In the garden pavilion a tranquil café invites you to rest your feet and enjoy a drink.
