Small castle with nice view of Stuttgart

Its a nice castle to go in Stuttgart, and can be easily reachable with the bus. I'd rather say that its a perfect photographic point. A perfect place for hiking and picnic.

Although closed when I visited.... it was a nice walk around the building complex. Make sure to google or ask the locals about closing times, I always ended up showing up when the places were closing or closed. (around 4pm)

Perfect place for that cheeky family photo, the sheer enormity of the square itself is amazing. Recommenced to come during winter during the christmas market down the road.

It´s nice to go there for a picnic or something. The castle looks nice (there are guided tours inside) and the park around is full of people in summertime.

Beautiful castle with amazing views, and crisp clean air, we visited in autumn so we were surrounded by a myriad of rustic colours, perfect place for a rugged up picnic after an invigorating hike, this area is surrounded by walking trails, chestnut trees line the road to the castle and it was harvest time so we topped off the afternoon...

Perched atop a hill and accessible by car, bike, or a myriad of hiking trails, Schloss Solitude is a throwback to dynastic Europe that now offers tours. You can buy tickets to tour the Schloss on location, and then chill on the huge lawn, look over Stuttgart, and enjoy a great picnic. Best on a sunny, picnic type day, this... More

Best way to reach this castle is either through a hike in the fires, where then the palace pops up as a surprise after a long walk. Or through the surrounding horse stables. Enjoy a wonderful view from the front gardens of the palace. A very good place to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee sugaring it with the... More

The castle is part of a huge ground of historical buildings of that time were the duke of Wuerttemberg used to live in silcence only with a small amount of people he liked to have around. Today...

Unfortunately,having driven half an hour to get there,we found the castle and restaurant closed at lunch time and couldn't spare the time to wait an hour and a half for opening, so I can't make any comment about the interior. There are differing opening hours each day,very strange. The grounds are extensive with good views. In late September the avenues... More

Having visited Gerlingen a number of times we have walked in the grounds of the palace on a few occassions, but this time we got to see inside. It is truly spectacular. It's a neoclassical building with frescos and murals adding to the splendour. It is only possible to see inside with a tour guide so check before you go.... More
