The Schaetzlerpalais, a baroque palace of the banker Liebert from Liebenhofen, was built according to plans of the Munich court architect Lespilliez from 1765 to 1770 and is said to be the most impressive achievement of the Rococo era in Augsburg. It is famous for its 23 meter long ballroom with woodcarving, stucco, wall mirrors and a ceiling fresco of Gregorio Guglielmi. In 1821, Baron Johann Lorenz Schaezler acquired the palace, which remained in the family estate as Schaezlerhaus until 1958. It was later given to the city of Augsburg with the condition to never sell the building and to use it exclusively for cultural purposes. The building is a registered historic monument declared by the State of Bavaria.
