Barockhotel Treppenaufgang mit Putti

Baroque stairway with putti

The hotel close to the cathedral

The building at Vorderer Bach 4, opposite the wall around the old cathedral castle, was built in 1520 for canon Willibald von Redwitz on the site of an old house. In about 1740, General Major Christian Ernst von Aufseeß gave the building an elegant facade and had the interior refurnished, probably by J.H. Dientzenhofer.
