A Baroque masterpiece, Schloss Bruchsal was commissioned by Prince-Bishop Damian Hugo von Schönborn, who was known for his art collections. The sandstone palace is flanked by carefully landscaped gardens that complement its Rococo hall, which features a ceiling painted with scenes of heaven.

  • pomposity which the province! It is not just the baroque castle itself; It is the entire ensemble with what white I how many buildings around the castle around one -, two -, and drei­GE­schos­SIG, all absolutely symmetrical,... and the castle garden... allows that with its water games that higher heart of each master beat... and invites everyone to the amazed and linger a!

  • The Schloss Bruchsal is worth a visit with guided tour. Certainly not quite as gigantic as Versailles or Würzburg, but worth seeing. The staircase by Balthasar Neumann and the ceiling fresco with stunning optical illusions. The kriegsbwdingten destruction can be only guessed at or feel on the images of the respective exhibition. From may 2017 the living rooms should be in addition to the halls again open to the public. The guide was interesting and entertaining. The castle is superb to reach with public transport. It has as it were an own light rail station. From there, you reach the Castle, by one passes through the castle garden.

  • I unfortunately have never been in the Castle, know the castle only from the outside. Nevertheless, I must say that I find very pretty Castle and the Castle Park - walk is very suitable for a Sunday Nachmittag-. In the park there is also a very nice playground!

  • Beautiful restauration of an opulent rococo-interior. Interesting Musical Machine museum.
  • A relatively small but very pretty Baroque palace, with a very interesting Music Automatons museum, highly recommended!
  • Beautiful park
  • Nice castle to visit
  • The musical instruments Museum in the castle is great. On three floors, you can visit a variety of instruments. The staff also runs various instruments and explains a lot. Stedelijk Museum informs about the history of Bruchsal and the surrounding area. There is also a small exhibition about the Castle and you can see a few rooms. Events are always in the castle itself and there is a cosy café right on the Castle.
