When you walk up the Koenigstrasse from the Main Train Station (Hauptbahnhof) you come to this vast opening, parklike, you have arrived am Schlossplatz. Beautiful, relaxing, great place to take a picture of the Schloss with the Fountain in front of it.

I was visiting the downtown of the city with my friends during the night, i must say the lights are really nice, a lot of people, food, shopping, etc. You can do many things during the day.

The place is full of people, food, shoppings, and life. It has all that one may look for during a traditional trip. We got a hotel just a few minutes walk there and it was perfect.

I passed by the palace square December 2014 but there is some restoration being done to some of the monuments so it's not exactly a photo opportunity at this time.

Came for the X-mas markets of which many are centered near the Schlossplatz. Unfortunately the greenspace was wet and downtrodden. The beautiful monument in the center of the grassy area was covered in scaffolding. The markets were beautiful with gingerbread goodies, wieners, gluhwein, candles, a train and ferris wheel for the kids, and lots of good cheer. Seemed like a... More

we absolutely love the Christmas markets in Europe. This one couples a great market with fabulous food and gluhwein with open space and nice architecture.

Looks just like any other palace in Europe, but this place comes alive during xmas. The xmas market was amazing and please arrive early in the afternoon and help yourself to the goodies.
