Conservatory in Ansbach has no connection with the residential palace of the margraves. Its construction began in 1726 and ended after 25 years. A long one-storey greenhouse became home to various exotic plants. The greenhouse is surrounded by a garden with accurately clipped plants, labyrinth paths and fountains. It is in this garden that the mysterious man Caspar Hauser was killed in 1833. The garden has a historical achievement: it became the first botanical garden to the north of the Alps where agaves blossomed. There is a total of 200 species of southern tropical trees in the garden. The conservatory is open for visitors. It also has a restaurant with several halls.
