The Schaezlerpalais is a historic palace located in the city of Augsburg, Germany. It was built in the 18th century for the wealthy textile merchant Benedikt Adam Liebert, and is considered one of the most important examples of Rococo architecture in Germany.

The palace features a stunning façade with ornate decorations, including a series of sculptures and frescoes that depict scenes from mythology and classical literature. The interior of the palace is equally impressive, with lavishly decorated rooms that feature intricate stucco work, frescoes, and ornate furniture.

Today, the Schaezlerpalais houses a museum that features an impressive collection of European art and decorative arts from the 18th and 19th centuries. The museum’s collections include paintings, sculptures, porcelain, furniture, and textiles, and provide insights into the artistic and cultural achievements of the era.

One of the highlights of the Schaezlerpalais is the Goldener Saal, or Golden Hall, which is considered one of the most beautiful Rococo halls in Europe. The hall features a stunning ceiling fresco and ornate decorations that create a dazzling display of light and color.

Visitors to the Schaezlerpalais can explore the museum’s collections and enjoy the beauty of the palace and its surroundings. The palace is located in the heart of Augsburg’s Old Town, and is a must-see for anyone interested in art, architecture, and history.
