What is the largest private home in Europe still kept up by a princely family?

Schloss St. Emmeram_ballroomAccording to Harvard Magazine, which concerns itself with life’s important questions, it’s Schloss St. Emmeram in Regensberg, Bavaria, home to the Prince and Princess Thurn und Taxis.

Of course upkeep of a milennia of tradition is expensive; Princess Gloria sold some of the home’s contents, including 75,000 bottles of wine, at a Sotheby’s auction in 1990 for $19 million.

Some rooms, such as the ballroom (pictured in a photo by Claudia Höfer) are available for private rental.
