The Bath House (Badhaus) was Elector Carl Theodor's private little refuge in the park. The house contains a luxurious bath, a private office and a chinese room. The precious decoration and furniture is, unlike in the main palace, still the original one!

This little jewel can be visited - you'll get felt slippers to pull over your shoes et the entrance because even the pavements are still original. Photography is forbidden altogether, unfortunately it has to be because those stupid tourists never learn to turn their flashes off when taking pics of light-sensitive items like frescoes and tapestries.
