Rastatt Castle (Schloss), Rastatt
(4.3/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
Wander the hallways of a grand castle at Rastatt Castle (Schloss), a summer home built between 1710 and 1730. Upper-class citizens used the castle as retreat during the warmer months, when the women would socialize and the men would hunt. See how wealthy Germans once lived, and also check out the sizeable collection of Chinese porcelain, black lacquer work, and Schwartz porcelain. Don't leave without exploring the military museum, too, where you can view swords, battlefield models, uniforms, and more dating from the Thirty Years War and World War I. If you are hoping for an English-speaking guided tour, be sure to make a reservation ahead of time; otherwise, you can join a German-speaking tour and follow along with an English-language brochure. Work out when and for how long to visit Rastatt Castle (Schloss) and other Rastatt attractions using our handy Rastatt itinerary builder.
