Schloss Favorite, Rastatt
Categories: Castles, Tourist Spots
Discover the opulent interiors of one of Germany's finest Baroque buildings, Schloss Favorite, the oldest of the so-called "porcelain palaces." Once a pleasure and hunting palace used by the widow of Louis William, an imperial general and ruler of Baden, the castle now houses a large collection of Chinese porcelain and lacquered ornamental objects. Originally only used for several weeks a year, the castle grounds became an idyllic setting for extravagant concerts, banquets, and hunting parties. Today, the palace is open to visitors, offering not only a look at the world's largest collection of porcelain, but also a rare insight into the lives of Europe's wealthy rulers. Be sure to spend a little time strolling through the palace's sprawling English gardens. Check online for opening times, guided tours, and ticket prices.

Une belle découverte! Chaque pièce est chargée d'histoire. Les murs et le mobilier sont restés intacts. On ne s'attendait pas à voir tant de trésors.A nice discovery! Each piece is steeped in history. The furniture and the walls remained intact. It was not expected to see so many treasures.show original
It seemed nice, but the whole outside was wrapped up in construction so we were only there for about 10 minutes. We didn't try to go inside, so I don't know if it's still open but I would assume it is as there were people there.
Another beautiful castle of Rastatt. With extensive gardens and a quality architecture, this castle worth visiting.
Very pretty interior, but visit requires guided tour in German only.
Patrick ZeilerThe baroque castle houses a veritable porcelain collection and is nestled in a landscaped park in the style of an English landscape garden. In good weather, or on free days pretty crowded, regional high-volume location for wedding photography.show original
