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.

  • A tour of the Royal Palace is highly recommended. The rooms were not destroyed by the war. The floors and walls were restored only for the part. The paintings and figures are original. The large statue of Jupiter can be seen inside also in the original. A copy is available on the Castle roof. The Schloss Rastatt (also baroque residence) in Rastatt is a former residential Palace of the Margraves of Baden-Baden. The Castle and the garden were built around 1700 by the Italian master builder Domenico Egidio Rossi as ordered of by Markgraf Ludwig Wilhelm of Baden-Baden. The guided tours are available for groups by arrangement also in other languages. Duration: 50 minutes each.

  • The castle is an attraction in Rastatt. In this respect one should not miss a visit if one is in the city. Extra due to the Castle I would not go but to Rastatt.
