Extensive and beautiful gardens but castle closed for renovation. Pretty restaurant but expensive for icecream and pot of tea.

Although not as spectacular as the ones in Versailles, Chantilly not to mention Faux le Vicomte ( but again, who was able to compete with Le Notre for baroque gardens?), the formal gardens are definitely worth visiting especially when you visit the two magnificently restored "fabriques", i.e. fake buildings, that is the extremely charming mosque and its " oriental" garden...

Beautiful flowers dot the entire park. The park has a lake with huge carps, a temple of Apollo, ruins of the temple of Mercury, an ornamental mosque, a cherry garden, and a Bath house which this most intriguing. In spring the Cherry blossoms burst into a lovely hue of pink and the whole garden becomes mesmerizing. Plan to spend 2-3... More

I had visited Schwetzingen about 10 years earlier for a training class and had promised my husband we would visit one day. For me the Schloss Schwetzingen.... It's grounds, surrounding park is a true gem. On this visit we spent about two hours wandering around the area, its ponds, lakes, temples and mosque. My husband loved it. Adjacent to the... More

only a few kilometers away from Heidelberg and this castle has a lovely garden with lakes and most of all perhaps the main attraction - the pink Moschee/ Mosque (which serves no religious purposes or whatsoever). Beautifully decorated with minarets and dome beside a small lake. To get inside the garden, you need to buy a ticket (only EUR3.00 for... More

We lived around the corner to this palace. Beautiful gardens to stroll through fond memories. Plenty to see and the Peacocks just strolling by are an added bonus.

the castle and gardens are very nice, well maintained and always worth a visit. But beware, the entrance fee you have to pay for the gardens. Such gardens in Bavaria cost no entrance fees.

The Castle has a nice and wide spread garden which is good to visit during Summer or Autumn. Castle is just ok

This is a sight to see when you visit Germany! To think someone had this entire property to themselves is wonderful! During the winter time, the gardens are still beautiful, you can imagine how breathtaking they are in the Spring. There is so much to see, regardless of the fact that everything is in German, you can still get pamphlets... More
