The "Altes Schloss" (Old Palace) is a rare example of a late Renaissance country residence.

After having been considerably damaged during the war, it was partially rebuilt in 1972. Under Maximilian I, extensive farm buildings were added to the original palace in 1616-23. Today, the Old Palace houses exhibits from the Bavarian National Museum, including an East and West Prussia exhibition and Gertrud Weinhold's collection of popular religious art.
