Palais Bretzenheim

Patchwork family residence at the time of the Electors.

Where better could an Elector house his mistress and his illegitimate children than under his own nose? The Palais Bretzenheim - located directly opposite the palace - served as accommodation for Elector Karl-Theodors mistress Josepha Seyffert. In 1777, the children they had together received musical instruction here from no less a person than Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Fittingly, what was in the 18th century the city's largest and most noble residence today houses the Mannheim Family Court, among other offices.
