A further property administered by the Bavarian Palace Department in the Bayreuth area is Fantaisie Palace and Park at Donndorf. Fantaisie Palace was begun in 1761 and completed after 1763 by Duchess Elisabeth Friederike Sophie von Württemberg, daughter of the Bayreuth Margrave Friedrich and his wife Wilhelmine.
Among the highlights of the palace is the copy of the famous inlaid cabinet by the Spindler brothers.
The attractive palace park combines elements from three main style epochs: Rococo, Sensibility and Historicism.
In 2000 the palace became the location of the first Garden Museum in Germany, with exhibits, displays and videos vividly recreating the history of garden design.
