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.

  • Cutest little castle with beautiful baroque rooms. A visit is always preferable however, the chateau park is rather flimsy and very bald.

  • 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.
