The Schaezler Palais
The Schaezler Palais is an 18th century palace built by the von Libenhofen family, who were trying to build a palace comparable to what the Fuggers had, but a the same time being a bit thrifty. What I mean by that, is that at the time property was taxed by the length of the front of the building, so they did as any family of bankers would do, and they had a very long and narrow palace. Today, the palace is used as an art gallery. More specifically, it is a gallery of Baroque painting. I’ve been through here twice with very different people and got the same response from them as I had myself: “it’s alright…” In other words, it’s nothing to write home about, but if you want to walk around a palace, it is a quite large gallery.
A bit about the language, note this is a "Palais" which is a small palace. If it were a large palace it would be called a Schloss. If it were a castle it would be called a Burg. This is a small-ish palace/house/mansion. [more]
