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

This castle is not a must do, but if you have time left it is a very nice garden to visit. Unfortunately the castle was closed when we visited it. But the garden is very well maintained and if you like to stroll in a park it is a very nice area. I cannot appreciate this garden as it should... More

Very lovely gardens, although you need to go there in summer months to fully enjoy the beauty. A charming mosque at the back of the gardens.

It was very interesting getting there. We used the bus from Heidelberg (which you can pick up at the train station), nothing to it and it was easy as pie. Not used to things being this easy with the busses. Anyway, the gardens were a lot like Versailles, laid out the same way and with the same grandiuos design. We... More
