A Small Rural Baroque Castle
Around 1700, a small rural Baroque castle was built in Weißenbrunn, just under 30 km from Bamberg in the Haßberge nature park. Since 2019, it has been belonged to the Schloss Weißenbrunn Foundation. It regularly hosts concerts, film recordings, rehearsals and courses.
A wonderful location for concerts
The Baroque garden east of the castle provides a wonderful setting for a new music pavilion, built in 2021 and designed by Brixen architectural office, bergmeisterwolf in collaboration with Kahle Acoustics, Brussels. The project was selected and financially supported by “Neustart Kultur”, a programme established by the German government, investing in cultural institutions suffering from the COVID19-pandemic. The programme is intended to preserve and strengthen the Federal Republic’s important cultural landscape.

For festivities and concerts
Sometimes, a little rain must fall, even in summer. Not as often any more, but every now and then, when concerts are planned for the Baroque garden. So it is very good to have a barn for concerts as a bad-weather alternative. It has also been used for film recordings because it has really good acoustics.
Around the Castle
Pastoral, very quiet and with many historical buildings
We experience the quiet and solitude as something quite wonderful. The gentle hills and varied landscapes, the wide horizons, the many historical sandstone buildings in the villages, summer roses blooming in front, the little roads where you can have wonderful – and above all undisturbed – cycling tours. A little paradise.
A house inspired by art, for those looking for something very special
