Imperial Palace and Casimir Castle incl. Count Palatinate Hall
Unfortunately both don't exist any longer - neither Barbarossa's Kaiserpfalz (Imperial Palace) nor the renaissance castle which the Count Palatine had built directly in his vicinity. But the spectacular building hasn't fully disappeared. The ruins which were given a roof and christened the "Pfalzgrafensaal" (Count Palatine Hall) in 1935 are well worth seeing, and in the former living room (or did he perhaps sleep here?) of the "hunter from the electoral Palatinate" today official receptions of the city are held.
