  • Gardens are beautiful and well kept. You can easily spend a whole day there if there where some food options. They charge something like 10 € to get into the garden and if you want to see the museum the price go higher. Lines to get the tickets will take you a while, at least 30 minutes if it is a sunny day
  • Been here couples of times loved it..will visit more in summer..beautiful place..a tourist attraction in Germany schwetzingen!!!
  • Very nice, romantic place, we where at the art-market in front of the castle building and at the little tiny xmas market before the castle entrance.
  • The park is beautiful in the summer and cultural events take place throughout the year.
  • Ticket cost is 4€ (with cable train included). One of most valuable places to see in HD
