Many of the rooms that you may see in Schloss Oberhofen are furnished and decorated with works of art, that were taken from other castles in Switzerland .In the "Empirezimmer" you may see the precious furniture of Anna Feodorowna, the russian High-countess, born as Princess of Saxen-Coburg-Saalfeld (1781-1860). She lived in Elfenau Estate near Bern between 1813 and 1838 and later at the "Chatelet de la Boissiere" close to Genf / Geneve.
Another one of the rooms is dedicated for toys of the children of weathly parents - see my last 3 pictures !
