“Nice palace, but fairly empty”
Reviewed 1 July 2012

I was there on a non-tour day, and I understand from the locals that a lot of the furniture has been sold off. There's a timed fountain that puts on a brief water show, and large rambling grounds, which include a small hedge maze. But kind of a slow day of wandering, unless you're looking for some peace and quiet.

“Hidden Jewel”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

Must see if you stay in Bamberg. The scenic views and botanical gardens here are amazing! Lovely walks in an almost endless garden and lakefront.

“An unforgettable tour guide”
Reviewed 16 November 2011

We visited Schloss Seehof for a daytrip whilst staying in Bamberg from which it can be reached by bus. We had a very tasty lunch in the Schloss restaurant by the entrance gates and also saw the baroque cascade which comes to life every half hour with all pumps squirting. The interior of thee Schloss is not terribly exciting as it has few furnishings although the rooms are attractive enough. However the guide made the tour an unforgettable experience by the sheer weight of personality and dramatic and funny effects. He made what could have otherwise been a rather dull tour truly memorable!

“Nice Place To Visit”
Reviewed 27 September 2011

Would have enjoyed it so much more if there had been a guided tour in English. No point in taking the tour when we didn't speak German .
