Rastatt

Trip Planner Europe  /  Germany  /  Baden-Wurttemberg  /  Rastatt
Rastatt is a town and baroque residence in the District of Rastatt, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It is located on the Murg river, 6km above its junction with the Rhine and has a population of around 50,000 . Rastatt was an important place of the War of the Spanish Succession and the Revolutions of 1848 in the German states.HistoryUntil the end of the 17th century, Rastatt held little influence, but after its destruction by the French in 1689, it was rebuilt on a larger scale by Louis William, margrave of Baden, the imperial general in the Austro-Ottoman War known popularly as Türkenlouis. It then remained the residence of the margraves of Baden-Baden until 1771. For about 20 years previous to 1866, the fortress of Rastatt was occupied by the troops of the German Confederation. The Baden revolution of 1849 began with a mutiny of soldiers at Rastatt in May 1849 under Ludwik Mieroslawski and Gustav Struve, and ended there a few weeks later with the capture of the town by the Prussians. (See The Revolutions of 1848 in the German states and History of Baden.) For some years, Rastatt was one of the strongest fortresses of the German empire, but its fortifications were dismantled in 1890.
