Welcome to the Sandschlössla Bamberg

Stay at the gondolier of Bamberg and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere of
the old baroque palace and its spacious inner courtyard.

The "Sandschlößla" is located in the heart of the old town and has 2 apartments in a very quiet location.

From Wednesday to Sunday, the in-house café is open and spoiles you with homemade cakes
and other treats. A bicycle rental is also available on the ground floor.

The history of our house begins in 1392. The "sand area" has always been the part of the city,
which the fishermen inhabited.

If you come by your own car you can drive directly to the front door.
For each apartment there is a parking space for one vehicle.

At the same time, you are in the center of the local nightlife. In the immediate vicinity you will find
plenty of restaurants and beer bars the most famous of which is the Gasthaus SCHLENKERLA -
about 400 meters away from Sand-Schlössla. Nevertheless, our apartments are very quiet,
since they are in the rear house.

You can do your booking by e-mail or by phone ...
So if you are planning a vacation in Bamberg, just give us a call.

We look forward to you.



The term "Sandschlößla" was not based on the noble inhabitants of the house, but was used in colloquial usage
due to the castle-like architecture.

- 1392 first mention of the house. The property was originally 3 separate houses, which were later united.

- In 1632 the houses fell victim to war.

- Reconstruction of the property around 1645 by Büttner Hans Lienß.

- Until the 18th century the house was inhabited by ecclesiastical staff.

- Around 1800, the house was completed again and completely renovated in early classical style.

- The main building is a three-storey, plastered dwelling-house with mansard roof.

- On the ground floor close to the inner courtyard are cobblestone pillars.

- In 1725, the free - standing staircase, made of oak, was planted with flat balusters and              
  white-framed vases.

- On the second floor, the ceiling was covered with a relief medallion with 2 puttos holding a basket; This is surrounded by   sweeping fields and garlands.

- The rooms of the house are provided with plinth panels, cut edges and carved rosettes.

- In the main rooms on the first floor the windowposts are decorated with mirrors and wooden reliefs; These reliefs             represent the four seasons in bifurcated groups.

- Contrary to the original tradition, the rooms on the second floor are the actual Belle floor: they are furnished with double-  leaf doors, which have been decorated with stucco frames and neo-classical carved middle rosettes. Above the doors         there are supraport fields in white and gold.

- Around 1800, a white column oven was installed on the second floor.

- parts of today's apartment "Casanova" were originally a connecting building to the rear buildings; The old city wall was       used for its back wall.

- At the beginning of the 20th century, the house was completed on the right by a one-storey low-rise building, which at       the time served as a photoatelier; Today there is a wine-shop.

- In 1938 Franz Albinger, painter and co - founder of the "Bamberger Sandkerwa", acquired the house and
  renovated it basic.
